Octavian Nemescu is one of its country’s avant-garde pioneers and initiator of the Romanian Spectralism. His seminal album GRADEATIA-NATURAL was the first fullyelectronic album to be released in Romania under its culturally-repressive Communist regime in 1984. Gradeatia was commissioned by the Belgian Radio-Television and recorded at I.P.E.M. Ghent. It’s an exploration into sonic primordial and universal archetypes recording ambient narrative blends, melodic electronic drones with field recordings to paint an ‘electronic fresco’.
After its reissue
on Sub Rosa last year, EUROPALIA is proud to present the
pieces in an acousmonium, interpreted by the Belgian
composer and musician Caroline Profanter.
An experience devoted to pure active listening, where the public will be immersed into the sound of spatial polyphony.
