Dinu Ivancu is a freelance sound designer, architect, and musician who loves to manipulate and contextualize both sound and forms. His focus is on conveying emotions through harmony and abstract sounds, following an organised but organic structure.
The fascination for sound and music from a young age led him on a path that had him discover the fantastic properties of sound and be forever fascinated by it. Having a few years of classical training in his youth made this connection permanent.
Even though later in life he specialised in architecture, sound and music were always of high interest to him. This had him involved in various events indoors or outdoors, from traditional events/parties to experimental and avant-garde venues.
