Future Beach

I have long wondered why music makes us feel the way it does. What is it about organized rhythms mixed in with bass that places the feelings of life on a higher plane while forcing us to gyrate our behinds? My theory is that it simply comes down to mathematics. Everything in the universe has been created through a perfect recipes of elements mixed together into a cosmic soup that creates the world around us. The air we breath is the mathematical sum of nitrogen and oxygen. Our bodies are made up of different ratios of organs that dictate whether we are perceived as an offspring of the Elephant Man or good looking enough to appear on the cover of a magazine. Places are measured in coordinates and time is followed by digits.

Everything is math.

For these reasons, it only makes sense that music enlivens our souls. It is the auditory beautification of math. Each beat that is filtered through our eardrums is the foundation of a complex formula that results with a song. Wouldn’t this explain why a song that doesn’t follow a tempo sounds like a mess? It is an invalid equation and doesn’t process in our mathematically dependent brains.

Hailing from Santiago, Chile, the trio that makes up MKRNI could be considered professors of auditory mathematics. They create complex electronic rhythms that are the musical equivalent of advanced calculus. Sounding like each song was composed by an Incan god, the exotic elements continue to push what we know about mathematical formulas and rectal gyration.

Blast them from the top of an ancient temple or sneak an earbud in during your geometry class. Wherever you are, MKRNI will be an excellent way to take you to that higher plane while changing the way you look at math forever.
