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 INFLUUT’s 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.

INFLUUT’s first album ostĭum on BANDCAMP

INFLUUT’s first album ostĭum containing four original pieces built as organic movements, following cycles that may be found in nature together with a subtle and intriguing technological component.

black cloud is a composition that has been written for the Black Cloud Kiev Art Biennial, proposing a journey in the post-Chernobyl era in three parts. The first jump into dark waters of technological expansion, second part plunges in the radioactive lands of failed experiments, last part is a renewal of natural fauna with electric bugs and mechanical automatons.

spiralis is a short piece setting up a perpetual hypnotic movement flowing away towards eternity. Machine encounters Nature in a strong yet subtle entanglement. This piece has been presented for the first time at legendary venue Bad Bonn in Switzerland.

volubilem introduces an interesting use of the voice and looper, it represents the continuous human flow in urban areas as a perpetually evolving cycle. Volubilmem has been presented for the first time at Sinestesia Jazz Club in Barcelona.

Their first ever composed 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 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. This piece has been composed for The International Symposium on Spatial Sound Art in Seoul in 2019 and has been presented on a 24 channels sound system as a world premiere for INFLUUT.
