Not having a defined music style is certainly the main appeal of EXXASENS proposal. The EXXASENS universe is full of sound landscapes which take the listener to a rich world of beautiful and powerful melodies. This could be the homeland of post-rock bands such as Mogwai or Explosions in the Sky, a place full of nice melodies with strong guitar atmospheres. EXXASENS style tries to go beyond by introducing progressive metal influences. EXXASENS was born in April 2007 in Barcelona, Spain as a solo project by Jordi Ruiz, guitarist of Playmotive and Kyba bands. Back then, Jordi began to compose and produce songs at his place only using a computer and his guitar, with the sole purpose of passing the time. Then, he decided to create a small home studio to enhance the potential for creation and improve the quality of his compositions. As a result he uploaded a song monthly on his myspace. Within a few months, he received over 10,000 visits and very good reviews. Spatial exploration by humans is his main inspiration source for this work. One year after its inception and after composing 12 songs, the new independent label «Counsoling Sounds» decided to go for EXXASENS. On May 10th 2008 an initial release of 100 copies was published under the name POLARIS. This first album has 10 instrumental songs that connect the listener with an inner world of melodies and sound effects.
