zenxienz states that "Cosmosis is all about capturing the abstraction of each moment and expressing the inexpressible. With every album, I dive deeper into my subconscious world through the process of creation. The further I go, the more I feel an effortless merging of emotions, sounds, and sights. My latest release takes listeners through an evolution and reemergence of the senses".
Sometimes you have to lose your mind to find your soul. When Hong Kong-born music producer and artist zenxienz (pronounced ZEN-SCIENCE), aka Cameron Williamson, found himself in the grips of depression, that’s exactly what happened. 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.
Growing up on the island of Kaua‘i in Hawai‘i, the tropical landscape fed his developing artistic mind. With a wide range of influences from the purely electronic to eastern and tribal sounds, incorporating nearly everything in between, zenxienz pushes the boundaries of EDM, jazz, and psychedelia with every subsequent release. Each new song blends internal demons and rediscovered passion into a work of art. With his album, Cosmosis, zenxienz aims to create a sense of wonder in the listener and a feeling of merging with the universe that usually only comes from a state of oneness and selflessness.
zenxienz now avidly spreads awareness and hope for those suffering from mental illness and advocates for a positive shift in the current atmosphere surrounding psychedelics and psychedelic therapy to provide more options to those in need. In the hope of providing both entertainment and education on the topic, zenxienz’s live shows are a perfect potpourri of visuals, music, and message. zenxienz provides a means of turning a mirror on society with his captivating instrumentals and animations, all while inspiring, and promoting change and connection with other human beings. One can expect to leave zenxienz’s performances with the feeling of being taken on an adventure and emerging with an open heart, mind, and soul.
