George D. Stănciulescu

George D. Stănciulescu (b.1982) is  a Romanian electronic music producer, composer/sound-designer and digital music theorist. George is a graduated psychologist (2006), MA in cultural management (2009) and  a PhD in philosophy of digital music and new media (2012, Alexandru I. Cuza University of Iaşi) . He also specialized in Paris(two fellowships in 2010 and 2011 at IDEAT and Sorbonne University), under the guidance of  French  professor and composer of Romanian origin Costin Miereanu. The book version of his doctoral thesis, entitled “Postmodern and digimodern music. Philosophical perspectives”, was published the beginning of 2014 by Editura Muzicală, with an introduction by Romanian composer and professor Octavian Nemescu. Through original concepts such as “pseudo-naturalization”,  “techno-poietic renaturalization”,  “hypersound icon”, “uchronic/diachronic performatism” among others, the research is the first one in Romania to deeply explore the metaphysical and phenomenological nature of virtual sound creation and computer based music in  postmodern culture.  

He is also an electronic and experimental music composer and producer since 2005, when he founded the neo-classical ambient/ avant-garde ensemble Ad Ombra, which consequently released a CD trilogy through polish label Rage in Eden Records. The three albums ( Rites of Genesis/2008, Magna Charta Illusorum/2009 and Almost Eternity/2011) received international critical acclaim and worldwide distribution. Some tracks were also included in various underground samplers and compilations in Italy, Germany, UK, Mexico and USA. In 2009, George started to focus  on the more electro-dance oriented sonic dimensions  by creating the eclectic electronica music project LeVant, which had its debut CD,  Beyond the Masque of Eden,  released  by Athens based label Dead Scarlet Records in 2010. The second album, “Knock, Knock, Ginger” was self released as a digital download in March 2014, revealing an eclectic paradigm that comprises indie electro, trip-hop, contemporary music and art-pop altogether.
