Sounds Like THIS festival
Ioana has performed at Sounds Like THIS festival among the pioneers of modern and contemporary music such as: Plaid, Ligeti Quartet and Awate.
Film music residency
Ioana was selected to be part of a film music residency organised by Brighter Sound and Studio12 aimed at addressing the gender gap in the industry. Together with 3 others female composers (Adina Nelu, Megan Tarpey and Lauren Hutchins), Ioana created the score for Unbroken. The work was premiered at the Independent Directions Film Festival (the INDIs Film Festival).

For his debut EP, the neo-classical composer, Marcus Elkjer, combines electronic textures and moody piano sounds with violin arrangements created by Ioana.
“Scenes” is a sonic journey into my subconscious. An accompaniment of the dreams I have. The songs encapsulate different scenes of a movie that has never been made but only exists in my mind. My hope is to make the listener connect with the sonic journey and possibly become part of it oneself.”- Marcus Elkjer
