Octavian Nemescu ‎
"Gradeatia / Natural"

LP, Electrecord, 1984

An instant favorite on first listen... 
this record is one big exercise in subtly intertwining
drone elements, be it they electronic, strings or vocals.
Side a bridges new age and nu new age with aplomb.
This material would benefit GREATLY from a remaster -
an undertaking which would bring out side b's fascinating
micro interplay that predated the software based lowercase
/microsound styles by over a decade. GREAT modern music.
A streaming/download archive of Romanian avant garde 
composers, including Nemescu, is available >here<.
