Brand new disorientating music video for a brand new music track.
Shot in billions of locations using 360 camera, drone and custom-made grips.
Psychedelic camera movements were programmed in post-production.
This piece got the award of the most inventive video in Lithuanian music video awards KlipVid.
Ziggi D’Agostino is an alter ego of writer, artist and performer Zygimantas Kudirka.
Every dj set is a journey through many genres from different regions in search for the contemporary psychedelic sound that sometimes is achieved by messing around with pitch and effects or playing multiple tracks at once.

Titas Sūdžius, who has become the music video director of the year, Antanas Dubra, the artist of the video clip “Hands off the blue globe” and the post-production house Madstone who’ve been recently working on Gravity 2 film, joined forces to create the most luxurious music video for Vilniaus Energija to date.
The video depicts a futuristic vision of Vilnius, and the main actor of the clip is a self-driving car. The song tells a futuristic story about an autopilot car that kidnaps a hitchhiker. He panics at first, but then experiences a Stockholm syndrome—the phenomena of victim feeling attracted to the kidnapper. It all ends up with a pompous scene of human marrying a machine in which Žygimantas Kudirka plays the role of a priest. Protesters gather at the wedding ceremony carrying posters such as: “Family without a car!”, “Pedowheels!”, “Do what you want, but in your own garage!”—as a comment of conservative and homophobic society.
During the shooting:
two cars were bought
Loft was occupied
car ran over the stroller
the hologram of Gediminas Tower was activated
religious rites were performed in Naujoji Vilnia district
This audiovisual performance is a study of a present state of EU flying fast to unknown direction. Although there’s some critique of some aspects of EU, the whole performance is made with a pro-EU stance, that reflects the views of an artist. During 45 minute session listeners get to experience the very essence of Europe.
The show includes EU horoscope, Brexit tongue-twister, ID of European citizen, warning about far right populism and spell casting to raise the left wing from the dead, suggestion for GMT alternative, baltic rave, nato footwork, electronic emigrant love ballad.
To get a sense of musical direction, the initiator of the project Žygimantas Kudirka - Mesijus has already warmed up such music artists as ZEBRA KATZ, CITIES AVIV, ANGEL HAZE, XXYYXX, SAUL WILLIAMS, MOUSE ON MARS, DEAN BLUNT, MYKKI BLANCO, GHOSTPOET, FELICITA.
Expect new breed of electronics with vocals in English and artificial languages and striking visuals.
Already premiered in CAC Vilnius, Warsaw Contemporary Art Center Vyjezdovsky, Rich Mix London. Created during the residency in PAF (Performing Arts Forum), France.
Genre: post-ironic electronics.
This is a music track criticising materialism, the lyrics consist of a constant wordplay made of non-existing compound words. The chorus is quoting the 90’s advertising slogan of the infamous Lithuanian bank Sekunde which promised crazy interest for investments, collected the savings of basically the whole nation and then disappeared with all the cash.
The music video for the track features a money sucking vacuum cleaner.
The video was premiered in the electronics store (that also sells vacuum cleaners) during working hours. The video was screened on 87 TV screens simultaneously. Idea and vocals: Žygimantas Kudirka Music: Pijus Meižis Video production: Adomas Žudys
Wider recognition came with Nelieskit mėlynojo gaublio (Don’t Touch The Blue Globe), an innovative video that raised environmental awareness, won a Lithuanian music award M.A.M.A. (in the Best Music Video category) and was presented at several international festivals (including the prestigious Oberhausen Short Film Festival in Germany).
Stop-motion animation on bare skin and soviet slide projector were used to create this hand-made music video, which was all filmed in a box.
