Born in Pascani (Romania), 1940, Octavian Nemescu studied composition with Mihail Jora at University of Music in Bucharest. As he was still a student he imposed himself as part of avant-garde movement in Romanian music composition. After 1965 he achieves works of the 'open creation' type, of conceptual and environmental music. He involves himself after 1967 into the Romanian spectral trend. Starting with the work 'Concentric'(1969) his creation has got archetypal vocation by cultivating an aesthetic of the essentializing. Octavian Nemescu cultivated the archetypal goals on all parameters and musical forms. He is the author of implosive music and of imaginary music. He composed multi-, post-, non- and
pre-symphonies. Lately he is interested by music with initiation character, developed in a non-spectacular, ritualistic atmosphere, as a chance to revigorate the old mysteries and as a modality of AWAKENING from the biological, mental and spiritual sleep. 'Gradeatia'. Composed in 1982, this piece was commissioned by the Electroacoustic Music Studio in Gent (Belgium) where it was elaborated. It was conceived as ambient music for Voronet Monastery (in Moldavia), as electronic-audio fresco paralleling the existing one, of mural-visual consistency. It happened in a historic moment when the communist regime in Romania demolished many churches. And this piece was conceived as a protest to these actions. 'Natural'. Composed in 1973, in its first version, and next in 1983, in the final version, this music has a spectral aesthetic orientation and at the same time, processual and archetypal orientations.
