Alina Kalancea

Alina Kalancea is a Romanian sound artist, composer, and synth entrepreneur based in Modena, Italy. Her artistic journey explores the paradoxical relationship between freedom and boundaries in music. Alina approaches sound design with method and discipline on one side, and intuitiveness and spontaneity on the other. The results are unique sonic textures that reflect this ambivalent approach: rigid, hypnotic loops and meticulously crafted sonic ambiences coexist alongside unpredictable and raw textures in a balanced and compact dialectical composition.
Every element of her sound art is organically related to the others through secret passages and hidden doors, altering all boundaries and expectations. Some ultimate paradox of spontaneity and total command frames Alina’s works, some randomness under control, some certain uncertainty. Her third album will consist of two works, Alchemy and Letters Never Sent, and it will be released in two different formats for Important Records.
Professionally, Alina has gathered a great amount of experience in Buchla and EMS synthesizers, instruments that she extensively uses in her artistic works. Since 2014, she works with London-based Digitana Electronics, a company that holds high the legacy of EMS through expanders and interfaces for vintage instruments and original designs like the acclaimed FSOL.
