Rinmodezer-freq (2010)
for solo prepared guitar and live electronics
The guitar has a wooden bridge (similar with the cello bridge) under the strings, which gives a strange color to the sound (comparable to the indian sitar or the japanese koto). The tuning is not tempered. Because of the wooden piece, which divides the guitar in two parts, there are only a limited number of pitches that can be produced. This is why I decided to add live electronics to the piece. The title is a combination of words made from the names of the effects that I used. (Rinmo = ring modulation, De = delay, Zer = harmonizer, Freq = frequency shifter).

…zwei oder… drei… gefühle, musik mit .com (2014)
for saxophone tenor, electric guitar, drum set and piano
The ideas, the concepts and meaning of the piece "...zwei Gefühle..." by Lachenmann, I find them today, for myself, far away. That is why I took the last sentence from the Da Vinci's text used by and transformed it to fit into our present daily life. I find in Lachenmann's piece another aspect, the hypostasis of the Plato's "Cave Parable" – the effect of education and the lack of it on our nature (Plato: Book 7 of The Republic-514a); only knowledge of the Forms constitutes real knowledge – now developed as finding the mystery in the obscure world and also the fear of what we might discover. This is what it represents for me.
Therefore, I have taken this situation and put into another context, we are now, in a way, "tight up to our chairs" in a "cave", were we are obliged to look at thousands of commercials, to receive thousands of information per minute, as a brainwashing machine which keeps going on and on forever. It's in a way a similar image with the one from the movie Clockwork Orange by Stanley Kubrick, when Alex – the main character – is tied up to his chair and obliged to watch on and on violent images in order to change his behavior.
That is why in the first 3 minutes of the piece there is a continuous change of the musical material. After, the images will become more connected to each other creating a new texture, much harsher, full of rage and power, leaving us - the people - no chance to survive.
There is also a comment to the musical language, to the very ingenious world of sounds in Lachenmann's work; I have tried to imagine a completely different sound world, in a way against it. That is why the title - paradoxically - could be interpreted on one hand parodical, but on the other hand, it expresses all of our feelings crashed in this absurd world.
The word .com, in this context, should be read as commercial.

Zori (2014)
for two sopranos and two pianos
The cycle of pieces "Zori" (which includes Zorile, Cântecele Bradului, Soul…Sing!… O, Soul!, Zori, calea lungă neîntorcătoare, Zorile de afarã) is inspired by two of the oldest funeral songs from Romania (both having pre-Christian origins).
First one is The Song of the dawn, a song, which initiates the defunct for the hereafter world. The singers used to call the deceased and give him advices about how to behave and what to do in the after-life.
The second one, the Song of the Pine tree was sang at the young & unmarried man or woman's funeral service, it was a custom to decorate a pine tree, symbolizing a hypothetical partner in marriage. Young lads used to look in the woods after the dead person's pine tree. It was a common belief that each person has its unique pine tree, hidden somewhere in the forest, which it shall be identified and brought over young person's grave, otherwise the deceased will not rest in peace. When the pine tree has made it's way inside the deceased courtyard, women start singing the Song of the Pine Tree and decorating it with sweets, fruits, ribbons, handkerchiefs, etc. Then it was carried at the cemetery and stuck on the grave, near the cross, symbolizing the just passed away young person's replacement in the real world.
Being inspired by these songs and by their musical aspects, I bring up, in my cycle, the two facets of death – death as a tragedy, but also as a continuation in another type of life – a metamorphosis, seen through the eyes of the Romanian peasants.

for orchestra (2 (1 and 2 also picc.).2.2 (2 also Bass Clarinet). 2 (2 counter bassoon)/ 2.2.2.1. / 3. Perc. / 12.10.8.6.4.)
Ruthless is a wild, brutal, musical description. The musical forms and gestures that would represent this savageness attracted me. This roughness can be seen throughout the whole piece, in the orchestration, in the formal aspect of the piece, in the construction of the musical material (for example the "beast chords" from the beginning of the piece that suppress any kind of movements or gestures of others, or moments when nothing can be constructed or continued because of another force that keeps taking them apart, etc.).
