Xen is the debut studio album by Venezuelan electronic musician Arca, released on 4 November 2014 through Mute Records. The album was recorded over a largely improvised six-month period in 2014. The title of the album is a reference to Ghersi's "feminine spirit" as portrayed in the album artwork and videos
Arca - Xen The tracks Alejandro Ghersi makes as Arca rarely cohere to normal ideas of structure or rhythm. His early Stretch releases for UNO made the human voice sound malleable and sickly. Then, of course, came Kanye West's Yeezus-where Ghersi could be heard in the evil, warped snarl of tracks like "I'm In It" and "Send It Up"-and his equally challenging work with FKA twigs. The album is named after Ghersi's alter-ego: "Xen is not really a boy and it's not really a girl, and her mere existence is kind of repulsive and attractive at once," he recently told Fader. It's that contrast of beauty and ugliness that Ghersi explores over these contorting, confusing 40 minutes.

Arca"&&&&&". It happened one soupy summer night, a couple years into college. Ghersi was living in Chinatown, immersed in the counter-culture romance of Tim Lawrence’s biography of the downtown musical innovator and gay icon Arthur Russell. Suddenly, True starts moaning inconsolably in the garden- She’s doing pitchbends, too! Ghersi exclaims-and I realize something: he hasn’t even been listening to the track as he is making it, because he already knows how it is going to sound. After coming out, Ghersi experienced something of an artistic breakthrough, and Arca was born.

While Xen conveys themes of isolation, the fact is that creatively, Arca is rarely alone. The two met online on a DeviantArt forum when Kanda was 15 and Arca was 13, both living on opposite sides of the world. For much of 2014, Arca has been holed up with the pioneering pop star working on her new album, an experience which has clearly left an indelible mark on the young producer. I was able to spend time with someone who not only shaped the way I listen to music but is never ever tempted to compromise, he says.
