Nick is a native to Southern California, who’s varied musical and performative interests lead to explorations in both physical and sonic space. Nick’s curiosity regarding experimentation with the passage of time, the occupation of space, and social-performance tropes is guided by a deep respect and acknowledgment of Black American music, other improvisational forums, social music, and reflections on grandeur in performance. His mix-matched musical experience yields performances where conventional lines have been selectively blurred and erased to offer new territory to explore, or at the very least, a unique frame through which to view familiar places.
He intends to make music fun – there are many ways to have fun – and at the same time, to make something that can stimulate the mind. Nick believes in creating new music and art that can both ask questions and provide new insights, regardless of previous musical or non-musical insight, and does not believe in high intellectual or monetary entry points to enjoying ‘higher levels’ of expression and communication.
