"Silence As Beauty" is an album by Romanian experimental duo Fierbinteanu, released in May 2013 via Local Records. It is a collage of ambiental sounds and urban noise, with a little bit of music, all recorded on low and high fidelity equipment, from 1997 to 2013. Plurabelle (stage name of Alex Bala, electronic recording artist) and Dan Michiu Dinescu (Abator Industries), among others, have contributed to some of the tracks on the disc.
Fierbinteanu is an experimental music duo, active in Bucharest/Romania. The group consists of Gabriela Fierbinteanu (vocals) and Cristian Fierbinteanu (computer, bass, vocals). Their music contains elements of pop, electronica, psychedelic, noise, ambient and sound collage. In 2012 they won the Antonin Dvorak's music remix contest, organized by the Czech Centre in Bucharest.
In concerts, they combine live performance with the manipulation of analog and digital sound. They released a double disc in 2012 (The Beauty Of Music), which includes some of their earlier material along with contributions from Claudiu Ilariean (romanian independent musician). They also put out a maxi-single CD (six renditions of a song called 'Love Goes Round In Circles') and have several other online releases.
Gabriela and Cristian Fierbinteanu have performed in clubs, galleries and online radio stations in Bucharest and have played live in Prague. They opened for or featured along romanian, american, english, german, french and czech artists.
