In its skeletal form, Infinitikiss is an ongoing solo and collaborative experimental music project of Nicholas M. Jenkins (drummer, composer, sound designer, illustrator) which draws heavily from electroacoustic music, musique concrète, and modern dance music schools of thought.
Inspired by the works and lives of composers and artists such as Steve Reich, Philip Glass, Tyondai Braxton, John Cage, Eva Hesse, Frida Khalo, Cibo Matto and even Yanni, this alternative outlet blends minimal electronic pieces with lushly ambient sound collage to deliver thoughtful songs of love, loss, and magic: all within the familiar format of modern pop music.
Now beyond a decade in-the-making, this amoebic project strives to continue expanding the possibilities of tastefully harmonizing acoustic and electronic sound while remaining open to interdisciplinary collaboration of artistic visions. (Infinitikiss wants to collaborate with you.)

Michael released his first solo album, ‘Face in the Cloud,’ in 2014. His new album is called ‘Pretend Like’ and was inspired by the harrowing twists that come from a life with a young kid, aging parents, and a country that can’t fit into its jeans anymore but refuses to admit it. He consistently threatens to someday write a self-help book called ‘Stop Trying to Look Like What You Used To Look Like And Just Look Like What You Look Like!’ but none of his friends actually think he’ll follow through.
