Octavian Nemescu is a Romanian composer of orchestral, chamber, choral, electroacoustic, multimedia, metamusic, imaginary, and ritual works that have been heard throughout Europe and elsewhere. Through many years, from his youth, Octavian Nemescu contributed decisively to the development of the avant-garde in Romanian music.

Raze De Soare (rom)

Cool Romanian meets balearic vibes - the Oriental motifs, the nostalgia and longing, mixed with 20th century electronics, a sort of psychedelic 70ties or 80ties chilled sound, starting off with dope bass and squeaky synth sounds. It could be made in the retromania of present day, as well as dug out from the vaults of Romanian synth pop

One of the highlights of Europalia Romania 2019 is the collaboration of Antwerp electronica wizard Milan W. and a Roman tulnic ensemble, with five women from the commune of Avram Lancu. A tulnic is a three-meter long wind instrument, similar to an alpine horn, used since the Middle Ages as a means of communication in mountainous areas. Milan W. resided in the Transylvanian mountains to experiment with the instrument’s rich harmonies and textures. The result will be a brand-new composition for electronica and the five-piece tulnic ensemble, premiering at STUK.
