Iancu Dumitrescu

Researcher in sound and heretic in the cathedral of contemporary music, the Romanian composer Iancu Dumitrescu creates shock and amazement through the polyphonies of polluted noise. In order to activate the sound, Dumitrescu and his ensemble Hyperion International suspended the traditional instrumental practices by ephemeral, multiphonic overtones, and distortions lost through the standardization of conventional instrumental techniques. The sounds of his music are further enhanced by computerized transformations of instrumental sources or by manipulation in real-time. If Dumitrescu composed a visionary world, he was forced to make pragmatic decisions regarding the interpretation and distribution of his music. His own record label, Modern Edition - reputed to be the first one established after '89 - documents an exciting variety of his work in about 30 CDs, often live-recorded concerts, through which Dumitrescu now as a sound engineer retains much of the intensity of a "To be there". Sergiu Celibidache, the composer's accepted master, would have approved.

A solid acoustic construction, to which I superlatively appreciate the color, dynamics, and, finally, fidelity. Being made by a team in Romania, I am more than excited! Design and comfort at work I appreciate them all.
