LeVant Q&A

Your name: 
George D. Stanciulescu.

Where are you from? 
Romania.

Name of band: 
LeVant.

Who else is in your band? :
It’s basically a solo project as far as the production goes, but I have a lot of collaborative recording and live guests, ranging from singers (Cristina Padurariu, Anca Belciu,Theodelle) to actors (Nicoleta Lefter), dancers/coregraphers, contemporary classical musicians and instrumentalists (Darie Nemes-Bota), video-artists that bring their input into the various kaleidoscopic states of the project.

How would you describe yourselves and your music?
Versatile electronic extravaganza with a dash of pop, ambient and oddball unconventional atmospheres.

Who are your main influences musically?
Contemporary classical composers, ambient, soundtracks, old school techno/club leftfield artists, IDM visionaires.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
Expressive elevation and personal therapy, altogether

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
That depends: as a recording artist under the former name of Ad Ombra, one of my main accomplishments has been the release of a trilogy CD boxset through Rage in Eden records, that was largely distributed in the worldwide underground post-industrial circles.
With LeVant, probably the show at Inner Sound New Arts Festival in Bucharest, which raised my standards in elaborating a complex approach to the notion of multimedia fantasies.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Probably my first live show under the name of LeVant.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Tough one, but I’ll pick the latest single, “Unjaded”, since it intertwines contemporary classical influences and samples with a straight forward club approach. Also, probably because it’s still fresh creative meat.

Where can we listen to it?


Where can we find out more about your music?
Here you go, have a pleasant exploration!

Anything else you’d like to say about your music that I forgot to ask?
That’s not much to be said, as it is to be felt and perceived. Music is a gift I am gratefully channeling forward to every curious ear.
