As part of the sixth SPECTRUM XXI Festival, Ana-Maria Avram and Iancu Dumitrescu present a unique programme of spectral music featuring the most exciting and experimental trends interpreted by the Hyperion Ensemble and guest soloists from France, Israel, America and the UK.
[audio:Iancu Dumitrescu – Bas-reliefs Symphoniques.mp3]Iancu DUMITRESCU and Ana-Maria AVRAM have become leading figures in contemporary classical music, developing a musical language that sweeps boldly from very small scale insect-like sounds to vast noise laden soundscapes.
In recent times they have attracted a lot of attention from musicians outside of the classical field, as the music is relevant to the post-ambient, post noise, post classical aesthetic which is the sound of the moment.
Dumitrescu’s work is a negation, from the depths, of everything in contemporary music symptomatic of distraction, of banalisation, and of a radical loss of purpose. His music is not a new convolution in the knot of modern music, but an unraveling of the curse.

“Spectral music is not an epiphenomenon, an accident, an odd eccentric point on the musical map, deprived of any consequences, but a vast ocean, fed by numerous rivers and brooks increasingly vigorous”( Harry Halbreich “Spectral music at the beginning of XXI century”)
