Dumitrescu is most closely associated with the Romanian spectralist movement in contemporary music. As opposed to French structuralist spectralism marked by the work of Gerard Grisey or Tristan Murail, Dumitrescu’s ‘transformational’, ‘acousmatic’, or ‘hyper-’spectralism emphasizes the shift towards a cooperative, non-hierarchical process shared between composer, performer and living sound. He is the husband and long-term collaborator of Ana-Maria Avram, also a spectralist composer. They are both the founders and conductors of the international Hyperion Ensemble.
