Testimonials

I met Titas, because he was the composer for the film Stone's War. The Film was shot in Lithuania and I spend a great time with Titas on the set of the movie, so that he could get a feel for a film and get a better idea, what was needed as far as a score concerns.  I think he is a wonderful person, very friendly, bright, very ambitious and extremely talented. I heard a number of his recordings he made for other projects and I expect to do him very well though his career.

We have worked with Titas on several films together, and I enjoyed his creativity, committment, and ability to achieve cohesion between music and visuals. The music by Titas enhance the film and find the right dramatic moments in the plot, therefore it is my pleasure to promote this composer for various type media projects.

We worked with Titas on The Platform project for HSBC. A new score with lower costs was needed. Titas claimed that it is possible to do that in Lithuania. So we had to try that out. He used local people and collaboration results were fantastic. People even now talk about the music in this project.

The music is an organical part of this excellently done short film. Patrikis masters the connection between picture and sound in a highly sensitive way. The orchestral score produces a strong atmosphere and draws the audience into the film, being an essential part of the narrative. We'd love to hear this composer's music performed by a real orchestra.
