Minua's music presents itself in constant alteration. Ranging from ambient drones, minimal patterns and free improv to more songbased structures, their style defies genre boundaries with a subtle blend of acoustic and electronic textures. With the unique instrumentation of two guitars and a bass clarinet the musicians act as one unit, dedicating themselves to the collective sound; one that evokes both out-of-focus imagery and low-key melancholia.
“The instrumentation of Minua is unique and their sound evokes a mood that one can easily get lost in. Their use of balance, space, and almost constant melodic improvising is intriguing as well very beautiful. What I admire most about Minua is their patience to allow their songs and compositions to unfold in very flowing rubato feel but at the same time holding the listener captive with an almost imperceptible intensity.” - Jim Black
