INFLUUT is a duo from Switzerland playing electroacoustic jazz.The essence of their music takes origin in the encounter of two souls with multiple faces and lives.Two opposite yet complementary approaches meet to explore instrumental harmonies and algorithmic synthesis.
Their 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. Nat Cilia brings her melodic subtleties and spontaneous breathings, Daniel Maszkowicz brings his psychoacoustic sounds and binaural effects.
Their 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.
