• Show Bio for Nickolas Mohanna
"Nickolas Mohanna is an American artist and composer based in New York. His interdisciplinary practice utilizes a variety of media to explore and blur the borders between music, sound art, video and drawing. Within his compositions there is a "tendency of sculpting and orchestrating a minimal array of sounds into sonically rich and spacious atmospheres." Most of the sounds are sourced from local environments. In a Village Voice interview, he remarks that his aim is to create an "immersive stereo space where the sound would be reduced to its rawest form. In addition to these works, he has also published a number of artist's books which have served as visual accompaniments or conceptual ideas to his sonic practice on the imprint Run/Off; which he founded in 2014. Mohanna attended San Francisco State University and went to the University of California, Davis for an MFA in Art Studio. While there he took courses with Bob Ostertag, Annabeth Rosen, Douglas Kahn, and Wayne Thiebaud."-Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nickolas_Mohanna)

sample the album:
"Culled from field recordings, sampled orchestral noises, and voice recorders, Sight Drawings explores the spatial impressions of sound within a delicate acousmatic language; producing expressionistic collages that translate into wide-screen cinematic terrain. Across the seven pieces, Mohanna cuts a tapestry of kinetic digital noise, deconstructed guitar, and sweeping brutalist strings, picking off from previous work; engaging the listener with a materiality of sound from the backdrop of a scorched landscape and collapsing infrastructure."-C Meyer
