Urban cultures: a celebration at RCINY

“Join us for a party with Romanian comics and electronic music organized on the occasion of the first Romanian participation to the MoCCA Art Festival, featuring:

Live performance: Romanian electronic music with
Rezistenţa Materialelor
The celebration of new urban cultures in Romania continues with a live performance by a band that aims at always taking their fans and public by surprise; their live performances combine the electronic music with other classical music instruments (violin, trumpet, horn, trombone, etc) as well as visual art or plastic mannequins. In December 2007, two Romanian students, Lucian Racoviţan (Architecture) and Costin Basica (Music Composition), decided to start an electronic music group bearing the name of an Architecture course program: Rezistenţa Materialelor (The Endurance of Materials). Since then, their music, experimenting and recycling musical themes and ironic events and characters from the social and cultural surroundings, was present in all major clubs and electronic music festivals in Romania.

The event is organized in collaboration with the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art in NYC.
