Nigul & Mensa. Live Recordings
[at011 : 18.05.08
Nigul its a project builded to explore and investigate the relationship between fear and sound experimentation. Nigul works with different field recordings, programming synthesizers and appropriating sounds from everywhere. He also plays with sounds from different sources as films or Classical music. Nigul got the influence from Dark Ambient, electronic experimentation and minimalism.
Over layering all this source sounds Nigul builds dark soundscapes fully wrapped of mystery. Sometimes he plays randomly to let strange things happen and to permit delicious coincidences. Aswell with some sound accidents Nigul conforms hes personal approach to electronic music. Its sound it is deep, hollow and dense, Niguls work its a stream where to dive and discover new worlds and fears. The work of Nigul talks about mystery shadows and what remains beneath it.
After a few self-published references and some gigs, In 2006 Nigul starts to collaborate with Strung Label. Since then he has been participating in the activities of the label aswell with the concerts and compilations that Strung releases every year.
In 2007 Far From Showbiz releases the first Nigul EP, this is Esperant la Nit. After that, at the end of December 2007, the Polish netlabel Kaos Ex Machina publishes the first Nigul LP called Pedra, Sang. Early this year the collaboration with the video artist Hipnosia Visual Z Project starts to merge Niguls sound with live processed visuals.
Mensa project was born on the spring 2006 when I was studying in Sweden. the project started to have a concret form after a few months working with the software. The plan was to develope a personal perspective abaut sound experimentation. The project was concived with the aim to be showed outdoors.
All the sounds that I process are thinked to be listened outside, in public spaces or natural enviroments. The whole concept of Mensa project goes arround the idea of estimulate a dialogue between sound experimentation with high-tech possibilities and the natural enviroment, the landscape and the countryside.
The process of production of the tracks goes arround the idea of something that its flowing. I start to work in a concret drone or pad and it can develope in something or not. Nothing its really planed in the process of production so improvitsation plays a really important role. Now a days I’m involved in Strung collective.
