Organized Music is proud to present Necropolis, a solo recording from US artist Nick Hoffman. Nick is an active participant in the US and international experimental network, having worked with artists across the map in tours and releases, and through the activities of his Pilgrim Talk record label.
Following a string of releases on a number of labels in the past years, including collaborative works on Senufo Editions and Copy For Your Records, Necropolis showcases some of Nick’s more uncompromising yet playful work. Based on processes of analogue and digital synthesis, and featuring extremes in volume and texture, the album’s five recordings comprise a fully realised suite of contemporary electronic music.
Born in 1985, Nick Hoffman’s interests include: algorithmic composition, self-governing systems, and medieval music. In 2009 he founded the Pilgrim Talk record label specializing in limited edition releases on analogue formats. He currently studies computer music at the University of Oregon and has toured extensively in Japan, Korea, and the United States. Collaborators include: Aaron Zarzutzki, Mattin, Ryu Hankil, Hong Chulki, Takahiro Kawaguchi, Utah Kawasaki, Devin DiSanto, Guilty Connector, Tim Olive, and Miguel A. García, among others. Recordings of his music have been released on Senufo Editions, Intonema, Copy For Your Records and Digitalis.
