During the six tracks, the music is variously atmospheric, cinematic, dark, dramatic, eerie, ethereal, evocative, experimental, gothic and haunting. Subtleties, surprises and nuances unfold. Soundscapes flower and blossom as genres and influences melt into one.
Everything from ambient, experimental, electronica, free jazz, funk, jazz,  Krautrock, prog rock, psychedelia and rock. One of the most obvious influences is Can. Just like Can, Cakewalk improvised on Transfixed. Cakewalk are keeping the improvisational flame alive Transfixed. They hone and sculpt a song until they’re mini modernist works of art. The other  way to describe Transfixed, is a cinematic Magnus Opus, where Cakewalk continue to push musical boundaries to their limit and beyond.
