Interminable is a Philly-based futuristic fusion project rooted in diasporic connection. Using improvisation and original compositions in Spanish, funky bass lines and driving rock beats, we create spaces of musical conversation to shed light on the connections that exist between our cultures.  With musicians versed in the traditions of son jarocho (from Mexico), jazz, rock, funk, classical and electronic music, we meet at the crossroads and create a music free of the constraints of genre.  

We will be launching our debut album "rebirth::renacer" on November 16th, 2018. The recordings take listeners on a sonic journey through the band’s three years performing with a variety of instruments and musicians from across the US and Mexico.  The album serves partly as an homage, partly as an inspiration, partly as a call to action, and wholly as a reminder that the power of rebirth lies within us all.  Produced by Sinuhé Padilla Isunza (Jarana Beat), mastered by Grammy-award winner Mike Couzzi (Santana, Shakira, La Santa Cecilia), and with guest rapping/vocals by Mare Advertencia Lirika, Interminable’s sound reaches new heights of musical texture and expression.  

The album's single, "Buscando un Futuro",  was released on November 2nd.  The song showcases the importance of searching for a future for ourselves and our communities even when we cannot fully see it.  The lyrics transport listeners to the allegorical woods of Time.  There, Past begins to see glimpses of another figure in the woods: Future.  Past feels a longing to meet Future, and races to catch them, while knowing all along that they are destined to never meet, for they are opposite beings.  With videography by Koof Ibi (Random Tea Sessions), dancer Belle Alvarez brings the figure of Past to life, while multidisciplinary performer Sam Cogdon (TOLVA) portrays Future.  Watch it here: 

Risks and challenges

As independent artists, embarking on any large project always carries a degree of risk. This is why it was important for us to work with a large creative team - by pooling our experience and resources, we can better hope to attain the project's potential. In terms of delivery of the items, that will largely depend on your location - anyone ordering things from NY, Philly or DC will receive them the quickest, and can even pick them up at our release shows. Those farther away will probably have to wait a little longer, although we will guarantee the speediest delivery we can manage. And, of course, digital content will be made available as soon as it is released. For anyone outside the US and Mexico, please send us a message and we will gladly figure out a way to work with you!
