INFLUUT is a duo from Switzerland playing a music best described as electroacoustic post-jazz. The essence of their sensitivities takes origin in two opposite yet complementary approaches that 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. INFLUUT pursues a hybrid approach between live concerts and multi-channel sound installations, with a reputation that is slowly building up in Europe and Asia. Their source of inspiration is mainly driven, among others, by Bohren und der Klub of Gore, Carl Michael von Hausswolff and John Butcher.

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.

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.

Their first ever composed piece ostĭum 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.

Nat Cilia brings the breath with her saxophone and contact microphones. She combines complex rhythmic patterns with subtle melodic phrases ranging from slow doom jazz to free and spontaneous composition. With loops, delays and spatial effects, the pure saxophone voice is combined together with surrounding screeches and howlings.
Nat Cilia is a multidisciplinary artist. She participated as an actress, dancer, composer, and musician (piano, saxophone, voice) to various production, mainly in Switzerland, France and Spain, notably with the direction of Jean-Pierre Raffaelli, Roland Olbeter, Esterina Zarrillo and company La Fura dels Baus. She founded Ooops! Company, international company for corporal and visual theatre production alongside artist Kristina Orlovic with whom she created several productions ( She works now on her multidisciplinary creation INTUITO and electroacoustic jazz duo INFLUUT.

Daniel Maszkowicz brings together digital generators and synthesizers for multi-channel soundscapes. He merges brainwave frequencies with binaural effects, and low frequency beats with psychoacoustic synthesis, creating intense yet introspective atmospheres stimulating some auditory sensory meridian response.
Daniel Maszkowicz is engineering research scientist in power electronics, curator for independent cinema, multidisciplinary performing artist, composer and cultural event producer. He is co-founder of electroacoustic jazz duo INFLUUT, primitive analogue electronics duo Biblioteq Mdulair, and performance collective SM Noise. His solo projects make use of digital synthesizers for multi-channel soundscapes. Nowadays, he works on algorithmic sounds and installations, enjoys Data Sonifcation with Python and SuperCollider, all with an approach that brings together science and art.

I have a music meeting at the moment and I will be a bit of a duo if you wish to be a good time to time to time to time to time to time to time to time to time to time to time to time …
