INFLUUT plays remote improv session with Artists from Macau.
We sent a video of a sound recording with visual effects by the Robert Turner Collective, the video will be played on stage with live artists improvising with us.

INFLUUT (Nat Cilia, Daniel Maszkowicz) is a duo from Switzerland playing electroacoustic jazz.The essence of their music takes origin in two opposite yet complementary approaches meet to explore instrumental harmonies and algorithmic synthesis.INFLUUT’s approach to composition leaves room for improvisation and electronically randomized sound events for building up a musical narrative that follows organic flows with a technological component.
The Robert Turner Collective from Switzerland provides the visual backdrop to INFLUUT’s sonic landscapes, creating a unified and immersive experience of post-jazz sound and algorithmically manipulated images.
