Volutes is the musical project of Chicago-based Christina Dennaoui. Playing music for over two decades, her training began with jazz trumpet and guitar and has evolved to include electronic music production and composition. Volutes's sound is a mélange of Middle Eastern drones and rhythms, minimal techno, jazz and field recordings. Her work places an emphasis on textures and atmospheres, all while creating musical environments that are aurally pleasing and highly danceable.
In January 2014, she released her first EP, Elegant Grey. Local Loop described it as a "standout electronic listen" and The Deli Chicago called it "a beautiful, elegant and at times haunting album." She completed her first full length LP, The Quiet Hours. The album was released digitally and on cassette tape on October 1, 2015.
