Multumult, based in Romania, has started as a project in 2015 and continues with its original aspiration, the practice of free music and creating a group where different improvising artists can meet and manifest. This explains the changing avatars, sometimes acoustic, sometimes electric, taking the ever-changing shapes of duets, trios or quartets. A main source of inspiration for the group is Romanian folk music, an important area of improvisation and oral culture. This is also reflected in the use of some traditional musical instruments. The nucleus around which all these stories spin is composed of: Calin Torsan (wind instruments), Vasile Gherghel (bass guitar, electronics, acoustic scenography) and Marius Achim (percussion). The violinist Marina Pingulescu joined the group in 2019. The group has played in Romania, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Italy, Macedonia and Turkey. Multumult has been involved in connecting artistic events (literary encounters or the opening of exhibitions), composed and interpreted music for two silent films and for a short artistic movie. Cultural sonic landscapes blends with electronic sound processing. "Small bits of information, coded in a language that transcend the world of words. We are a strange tribe without houses. Our animals have inappropriate colors and their milk sometimes drains from the sky. Like white rain. Sometimes we gather in the sockets around the sacred fire and make sounds happen; it's the gift that we'll leave to this world. The shaman's dream is the illusion of illusions. Like rainy white."
