Rodion G. A.

Profile:
Early krautrock/hard rock and experimental electronic group, formed in 1977 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

The project began in the early 70's with the home-recording experiments of it's mastermind, Rodion Roșca. During this time he created numerous home-recordings on his reel-to-reel tape recorder, some of these early songs evolving into Rodion G.A. songs. The band proper, was formed in 1977, with the addition of Gicu Fărcaș and Adrian Căprar. The sound of the group varied from psychedelic/hard rock, to krautrock and even towards experimental electronic.
Although the band was only able to release 2 songs during the Romanian communist rule, they received radio airplay, were able to play live, and were well-known inside the country. They were notable for their unusual experimental sound at the time.
After the fall of communism, the group split and Rodion Roșca fell into obscurity, retreating to rural Transylvania.
With the rise of the internet, word of his project, and it's unusual sound started spreading again, and he made a come-back, finally being able to release a lot of his old material on vinyl and CD.
Because of his early experimentation with recording and effects, Rodion is considered the "Father of Electronic Music in Romania".
Rodion G.A. came to an end with the passing of Rodion Roșca on the 27th of March 2021.
