"What happens if the Ghost in the Machine exploits the cracks, connects to the control software and takes over the factory floor? No, it's not a fantasy creature...but an electronic music producer that through the avant-garde circuits and network cables, redefines the multidimensional, aided by glitches and beats" - Artnoir musik Magazine

A review of 0102 by Artnoir - Musik Magazine from Zurich. A translated extract : " What happens if the Ghost in the Machine exploits the cracks, connects to the control software and takes over the factory floor? No, it's not a fantasy creature like Ultron, striving for world domination with English accent - but an electronic music producer that through the avant-garde circuits and network cables, redefines the multidimensional, aided by glitches and beats"

BIO

George D. Stanciulescu

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.

LeVant's full length, "Knock, Knock, Ginger" was released in March 2014 in digital format and was selected by Vice Magazine as one of the best materials of 2014, as well as being for one week the most clicked album on German site Album Streams. A new EP "Tone Skin" was released digitally in May 2016 by Swedish label The Sublunar Society and has been described as "a wonderland of mesmeric rhythms" (ColoRising). The EP also earned LeVant the "Artist of the Week" status in Milan based Vox Magazine. In January 2017, a new EP "UnFinetude" was released marking a digimodern sound, more intricate, experimental and dark. The work has been critically acclaimed and was chosen as the best EP of the month by French online publication Indie Rock Mag. Soon after, George started a new experimental project BLYPKEN dedicated to freeform explorations of the unconvential post-dance sound . The audiovisual show, “The Fetishamanic Maze” has been debuted at RADION Amsterdam. The first EP "0102: Transcend|Transfigure" was released by The Sublunar Society in August 2017, while the second one, the "Hylemorph" suite was issued by US label #Feelings in April 2018.

He has also composed music for theatre and contemporary dance shows.

Reviews extracts:
"BLYPKEN morphs "Transfigure" into musical mastery"(Tiny Mix Tapes)

"Being unique and exploratory are two essentials the world forgets to teach us. We come to it on our own. For George Stanciulescu, the application he defines music in BLYPKEN is a calling." ( The Playground, London)

"Romanian post-club experimentalist Blypken’s "Hylemorph" is a stuttering, shifting cluster of anti-matter that moves in electrifying and unexpected ways [...] making it altogether a thrilling experience". (UPPROX, Los Angeles) 

"If you are interested in the future of sound design, look no further than "Hylemorph" [...] one twisted ball of distorted madness and precisely layered vocal samples, culminating in a fascinating final result" (Juno Download)

""Purity Nemesis” is a hypernoiac suite of sound [...] a kind of information overload that eventually destabilizes normal modes of apprehension" (Live Eye Tv, Seattle)
