ugne&maria is the electroacoustic music duo project of Ugnė Vyliaudaitė and Marija Rasa Kudabaitė, both based in Brussels. Their musical output began in 2016 with a live debut in Brussels and continued with various experimentations using violin, synthesizers, sampling techniques, and voice. Their music is made from a mosaic of samples and carefully triggered field recordings. Intricate and calming but far from ambient, in that where ambient music recedes ugne&maria’s music sounds always close to the skin. Their music has been released on Interior Insula, Gems Under The Horizon, Rocket Recordings, and Futura Resistenza labels.
