Xumla is the work of Ilya Goryachev, who lives in Yaroslavl, Russia. His music is marked by gentle, almost fragile melodies, broken rhythmic patterns, minimalistic arrangements and characteristic textured layering of musical themes. Statix contains a sense of passage. Journeys through the fractal patterns of Petersburg’s yards, the white magic of Valaam and the magical colour of Cuba. A visit to the dead abyss of Chernobyl, the loneliness of Yaroslavl’s grey walls and the timelessness of trips through Russia, a motherland. The author admits that only travel reveals the true movement inside you.
Xumla just released Statix her debut album, Statix. You can find it here.
