INFLUUT 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.
Sometimes, 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.
INFLUUT’s creative work is initiated by a perpetual questioning about the world that comes after. What happens after apocalypse, war, pandemic or mass extinction? Machine encounters Nature in a strong yet subtle entanglement, achieving the renewal of natural fauna with electric bugs and mechanical automatons. A new cycle commence, like a vivid blow expanding the universe of possibilities. The duo invites for the unexpected, a voyage to be enjoyed by astral projection or on a flying carpet, experiencing various emotional states from still streams to explosive storms. Best serving live with quadriphonic surround soundsystem so the music can propagate in space for a truly immersive experience.
With a reputation that is slowly building up in Europe and Asia, INFLUUT pursues an innovative work.Their source of inspiration is mainly driven, among others, by Bohren und der Klub of Gore, Carl Michael von Hausswolff and John Butcher.
