Engaging with cultural frameworks and dismantling political mechanisms of homogenized rationality, Xenia Xamanek advances the practice of musicality towards the edges of club music and the notion of genre.
Xenia’s transdisciplinary practice builds upon computed orchestration, outputs of skillfully developed hardware experimentation, and a conceptional curiosity that has led to the creation of a diverse body of content. The genre flux often welcomes an unanticipated mixture of sounds, both inclusive and unapologetic in its diversity.
Their latest release DELIRIO REAL manifests the underlying artistic approach of Xenia Xamanek in its use of volatile aesthetics and shifting emotions, while their Danish/Honduran/Nicaraguan ancestry remains a structure from which working with Latin American cultural heritage mixed with the Scandinavian is reworked and expressed in their music.
Devising connectivity, Xenia has worked with collaborative site-specific sound art, audiovisual performances, as well as being a founding member of the music platform UUMPHFF, which aims at building community centering global majority musicians and music lovers.
Their live performances and DJ sets include appearances at Roskilde Festival (DK), MONOM 4D (DE), Alice (DK), and Terminal Club Antisocial (MX).
