Xen is the debut studio album by Venezuelan electronic musician Arca, released on 4 November 2014 through Mute Records. The album was recorded over a largely improvised six-month period in 2014. The title of the album is a reference to Ghersi's feminine spirit as portrayed in the album artwork and videos. According to the artist, the designer Jesse Kanda asked if I had a girl's name when I was a kid, I told him that I have this image in my head when I listen to a song of mine that I really love or. Video by Jesse Kanda Xen. Album 2014 15 Songs. Xen is his second official full-length work. Working without the limitations that starring vocalists bring though conversant in using the human voice as an instrument, Arca succeeds largely because he allows few defining centers of gravity, preferring a free-flowing non-linear sense of motion thats comfortable leaving great amounts of space b. Genre: Wonky. Xen is a clear demonstration of Arcas potential as a producer. The experimentation with weird noises and textures is pretty interesting. However, this project lacks in energy. Most of it feels so lifeless that its almost like Im listening to an endless video game soundtrack. By the end of it, I was getting pretty bored and annoyed to be honest.

Arca is the incarnation of Alejandro Ghersi, a 24-year old Venezuelan producer and musician releasing his debut LP, Xen in the fall. Xen is a very personal record for Arca, with the underlying concept revolving around gender without defining the album. Rather gender is a vessel with which Arca can expose his own vulnerability. Arca works closely with visual artist, Jesse Kanda who created the album cover for Xen. Track Listings. Disc: 1. Now You Know. Photo: Daniel Sannwald. The album is named for his ambiguous alter ego, Xen, a sort of Sasha Fierce for alternative kids that embraces both sides of the gender binary in his brain, a way of expressing how he can feel masculine and feminine at once. I used to play lots of online video games, and I made a girl character for an online role playing game named Xen, he says. Then I started signing my diary, Dear diary, love Xen. If I was making music I was happy with, Id close my eyes and move slower or in a gentler way: thats Xen. I guess all of us have a little bit of both, masculinity.
