Hyperion was founded in 1976 by the composer Iancu Dumitrescu.As a
starting point, Hyperion explored possible connections between the
most archaic Romanian music – Byzantine music, folk music collected by
Bartok, etc. – and today’s avant-garde music. It is a tradition of
performance, of interpreting each new score as a provocation of the
spirit, and a quest for new domains of sound. Aesthetically, at the
heart of this work is the notion of spectrality as it developed in the
work of Dumitrescu, Avram and other Romanian composers – that is: a
specifically transformational spectrality, as opposed to the
structural spectrality of the French Itinéraire group. Hyperion has
performed all over Europe, Israel and in United States, and recorded
numerous LPs and 28 compact discs (from Mode Records- New York).
