Sonically sophisticated, Kurios is a soundtrack to the latest Cirque du Soleil touring production, which examines a 19th century inventor who develops a mechanism that challenges the biological rules that govern time, measurement and the universe. It can reinvent everything around him to exhibit elements of science fiction, fantasy and technology, with the consistent presence of a 19th century industrialized steam-powered machine. Featuring tracks evocative like “11:11,” “Steampunk Telegram” and “Hypnotique,” Kurios has the mystery and power to leave the listener spellbound.
