About the artists:
Thanasis Kaproulias, who records under the pseudonym NOVI_SAD, is a young Greek sound artist based in Athens. Kaproulias combines environmental recordings, drone manipulations, microtones and overtones to create music that is at once precisely calibrated and intensely visceral. He has recordings out or forthcoming on Sedimental, Touch, and Staalplaat. We are very pleased to present Novi_sad’s first concert in the U.S.!
Listen to Dramazon, an extended piece from 2008 by Novi_sad, on TouchRadio.
BENJAMIN NELSON has been working with electronic music in various forms for the past ten years, as both a solo artist and a member of various ensembles. From 2003-2008, he studied composition and electronic music at Northeastern University, where he took a particular interest in the work of early electro-acoustic and minimalist composers. Benjamin’s music tends to focus on musical extremes, such as duration, volume, density, or the lack thereof.
