Introspective is an audition series that provides a public context for the kind and multitude of music which is otherwise listened to in private spaces: from the microcosm of headphones to at-home intimate gatherings.

The pushed to be peculiar, the ‘abnormal’, is brought out with the intention to shed light onto experiment, the beauty of sincere process and difference rather than the proliferating result-driven product. We hope these sessions will encourage attendees to create and think freely.

Initiated by Beatrice Sommer, with the help of Cristiana Tăutu and Tatiana Moise.

Control Club / Constantin Mille 4, Bucharest, Romania

We’ve been wanting to invite Puce Mary here for a long time and we are finally having the Scandinavian artist perform to the local audience. Her music is a work of uniquely sounding noise—raw and disturbingly honest, needing no words to describe it.

Introspective #8

Iancu Dumitrescu

Introspective #6


12/10/2018 20:00

Cinemateca Union / Ion Câmpineanu 21, Bucharest, Romania

This session’s motif is NU, Ionescu style. Stütz doesn’t see music, but given a cinema screen, synesthesia will be channelled through the collages of Alex Badea and the live visual alterations of Șerban Netejoru and Dan Fiera.


Introspective #5

Micleușanu M., Alexandru Patatics

29/06/2018 21:30

Introspective #4

Piotr Tkacz

25/05/2018 20:00

Piotr Tkacz, Polish improviser, organiser and DJ will present Radio Bluszcze. In darkness through a tunnel, via all those cables and strange machines to put in on tapes, running and ruining, one way and back again.

Introspective #3


19/01/2018 20:00

Imagine you just got in one of Romania’s post industrial cities. It’s January around 6pm and the sun is already gone.
