XINA XURNER IS AN EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC/PERFORMANCE COLLABORATION BETWEEN MARVIN ASTORGA AND YOUNG JOON KWAK, WHOSE CATHARTIC PERFORMANCES COMBINE DIY AND POWER ELECTRONICS, MUTATED VOCALS, AND BAD DRAG, TO EXPAND IDEAS ABOUT QUEER AND TRANS BODIES. THEIR MUSIC COMBINES A VARIETY OF GENRES (INCLUDING HAPPY HARDCORE, INDUSTRIAL, DRONE METAL, AND TECHNO-OPERA), IN ORDER TO CREATE SADICAL AND SEXPERIMENTAL NOISE-DIVA-DANCE ANTHEMS THAT EVOKE A SENSE OF DEATH, DECAY, AND TRANSFORMATION. XINA XURNER RELEASED THEIR DEBUT ALBUM "DIE" IN 2012 AND THEIR FOLLOW-UP "QUEENS OF THE NIGHT" WAS RELEASED IN APRIL OF 2018. XINA XURNER WILL MAKE YOU SWEAT.

I am a producer, composer, instrumentalist and theater maker. Minivan is my minimalist electropop project featuring instructional dance and disintegrating drag. Fers Yn Ri is the ensemble dedicated to performing my baroque deathpop. I am a member of the New Perplexity composer’s collective, which also configures as the New Perplexity Daxophone Consort and the Tinnitus Music Trio. The Cult of the Illuminated Orifice, an amateur performance troupe that I direct, probes the boundaries of public life with theatrical interventions such as the Mobile Colonoscopy Clinic.
