"taupe set xl is the devotional sound project of Kristen Soller, a Miami-based artist and hypnotist of the Philippine diaspora.

Marta Núñez Pouzols, October 2023:

“In the back of the throat there is a subterranean river that holds you, humming towards the cave's end. This end is a liminal mirror reflecting the contours of your voice. The mirror shows how —when brought to certain aquatic depths— unheard of limbs and wondrous branches are prone to sprout from your voice. Blind sibyls, your voice's branches climb the surface, in search of light and warmth. After the great drought, your voice's limbs towards persevere. They stand naked, pulsating in the purple that lies underneath grey. Your voice's limbs erect themselves as monuments to air, kin among the deafening night. The water level is now only tall enough to keep your voice's core below. Your voice, fed by the swamp, cradled by duckweed, wrapped in horse tail, has become a secret organ. Your voice palpitates and releases twin echoes that undulate, to smoke's rhythm, in the afterglow. Intricately connected by labyrinth to soil and moon, through the water lilies' roots, your voice weaves an underweb that flickers like the eye of a flame. Your voice sediments the entwined veils of miracle and prayer.”
