Infinite Machine presents Xenial by Cura Machines, the synthetic and immersive alias of composer Daniel Lea with three shattering pieces that explore multidimensional resonances and uncanny atmospheres in the most stirring way.
Between the histrionic and the unearthly, Xenial is a ghostly collection of overwhelming aural environments embodied in three soundtrack-like compositions. The futuristic motives of these eerie like soundscapes emerge as a sci-fi narrative that resonate in forsaken surroundings with mythical ambiances.
The EP mixed by Ben Frost embraces vast layers of clanging noises and cybernetic percussions dissolving in sharp synthesizers and soaring harmonies. Disseminated traces of human voices that integrates into a sea of desolated soundscapes composes a recondite and nearly symphonic work that highlights for its incisive and intricate production.
Xenial faces the unknown with poignant sensations. It is an encounter with mystical environments and unbounded solitude of bleary possibilities.
