XYZR_KX - Inanomie OP.221

'Inanomie OP.221' is an act of cultural reappropriation. Using the musical form made popular by Finnish composer Sekari Hulkohhen, XYZR_KX reconstructs the meaning of the Inanomie by exploring its Phillipino origins, resulting in a decisive work that functions as both an an extension of the musical ideas developed in ‘Falls’ and a statement against cultural imperialism.
