Alina Kalancea is a Romanian sound artist and composer based in Modena, Italy.
Her powerful rhythmic sequences, dark ambience, heart beating frequencies and hypnotic loops are paradoxically encapsulated in carefully crafted sound structures and designs, full of secret passages and doors. Most revelatory flickering soundscapes and receding atmospheres create ungraspable sonic experiences, which take us over, immersing us in powerful and mind altering soundscapes. Some ultimate paradox of spontaneity and total command is under work here, some randomness under control, some certain uncertainty.
Alina Kalancea has studied sound design and synthesis with Enrico Cosimi (Professor of Electronic Music at University of Rome Tor Vergata) and collaborated with producer Alex Gámez aka Asférico (Head of Störung), and artists Julia Kent and Raven Bush. Nowadays, she combines her work as sound artist, her third album ‘Letters Never Sent‘ that has been just released, with being the founder of Soundfreak, the company that brings the VCS3 synth, officially licensed by EMS, to new formats. She also is official collaborator (builder and assembler) for Digitana Electronics.
