Zenxienz crafts a mesmerizing sonic world with new album “Cosmosis”
Now more than ever it is important that we learn to deal with topics like mental health and depression in progressive ways. One way that we can learn to communicate about these sensitive nuanced subjects is through the art of music. When Hong Kong-born music producer and artist zenxienz (pronounced ZEN-SCIENCE), aka Cameron Williamson, found himself in the grips of depression, he turned to electronic production to better understand himself. Sometimes you have to lose your mind to find your soul and Williamson’s latest album Cosmosis truly encapsulates that ethos.
Cosmosis is all about capturing the abstraction of each moment and expressing the inexpressible. With every album, zenxienz dives deeper into his subconscious world through the process of creation. By diving into this ethereal world Williamson has tapped into a wealth of creative energy that fans can feel pulsating within each one of his mindblowing tracks. Reminiscent of some of the very best names in psychedelic electronic music like Tipper and Shpongle zenxienz is etching out a place for himself to stand apart.
Williamson has the ability to craft breathtaking soundscapes by combining mesmerizing elements of far Eastern music with sinister elements of dub and IDM from the West. “Fusion Dissolution” is a perfect example of zenxienz’s absolutely uncanny ability to capture sonic juxtaposition perfectly. “Synesthesia” is a high energy drum and bass track that gleams with invigorating synths and scintillating percussive elements. Cosmosis continues this raucous theme with bangers like “Aurora,” “Elysium,” “Sapiens” and “My Grip Weakens” all showing off zenxienz’s immensely cacophonous style. Smoother tunes like “Dao,” “Aya For An Eye,” and “Flutter” illuminate the emotional depth of this truly imaginative release.
After struggling for years with a creative block which nearly consumed his love of music, Cameron one day sparked a perpetual flame in himself in summer of 2016 by dedicating his time and energy to creating a new track every day (and eventually adding digital art to the equation). zenxienz was born out of the idea that music is a true journey of the mind. A two-year finalist in the International Songwriting Competition and a Na Hoku Hanohano-nominated artist, zenxienz developed a knack for capturing beauty in the soul-wrenching moments of life that make his instrumentals transform you in a unique, introspective way while still maintaining a groove that keeps you moving.
