I have a music meeting at the
moment and I will be a bit of
a duo if you wish to be a good
time to time to time to time to
time to time to time to time to
time to time to time to time …

INFLUUT is water and earth played by fire and air, the movement of invisible fluids and the breath in electricity, the perpetual flow of a river at its estuary, the entrance door for altered perceptions, the gateway between two multiverses, the passage between the undergrounds and overgrounds.
The essence of its music has an origin in the encounter of two souls with multiple faces and lives. Two opposite yet complementary approaches meet for exploring ways to organic harmonies and sound spatialization.

Their first piece ostĭum is constructed as an organic movement in five parts. It lets room to improvisation and electronically randomized sound events for building up a music narrative that follows some cycles that may be found in nature. The final part is the calm after the storm. The relaxing melodies bring a soft and self-healing hypnosis putting the confused souls down to sleep. As dusk becomes night, the insects wake again and crawl down around the floor and the trees.

BIOGRAPHY

Nat Cilia (Nathalie Cecilia Pierrehumbert) brings the breath with her saxophone and contact microphones. She combines complex rhythmic patterns with subtle melodic phrases ranging from slow doom jazz to free and spontaneous composition. With loops, delays and spatial effects, the pure saxophone voice is combined together with surrounding screeches and howlings.
Nat Cilia is a Swiss/Spanish multidisciplinary graduated professional artist. She participated as an actress, dancer, composer, and musician (piano, saxophone, voice) to various shows, mainly in Switzerland, France and Spain, notably under the direction of Jean-Pierre Raffaelli, Roland Olbeter, Esterina Zarrillo and company La Fura dels Baus. She founded Ooops! Company, international company for corporal and visual theatre production alongside artist Kristina Orlovic with whom she created several productions (Libre, Orphic and Divagations Intuitives).

Daniel Maszkowicz (Daniel Siemaszko) works with SuperCollider, bringing together digital generators and synthesizers for multi-channel soundscapes. He merges brainwave frequencies with binaural effects, and low frequency beats with psychoacoustic synthesis, creating intense yet introspective atmospheres stimulating some auditory sensory meridian response.
Daniel Maszkowicz is a power electronics engineer, music composer, cinema curator, film producer, and performer from Geneva, Switzerland. He is co-founder electroacoustic duo Biblioteq Mdulair, co-founder and producer of performance collective SM Noise, founder of SZKMD production for cinema sound design. His solo project Kosmoscore (a.k.a Générateurs, Cosmos, Cosmic Sleep) takes several forms, from short and intense live concerts to long hypnotic marathon sleep performances. He presented his work internationally and participated to several publications and conventions.
