MADS EMIL NIELSEN (DK)
Ranging from ritualistic chaotic rhythms to granular dripping bliss. Modulated and looped sounds creating rhythmic elements and forms through repetitive structures.
The Danish composer Mads Emil Nielsen has released several records under his own name but is also a frequent collaborator and has participated in numerous projects ranging from the role of co-producer to making installation art.
Mads Emil Nielsen is also the driving force behind the experimental label Arbitrary – which has been the primary output for his music. The label has released live recordings and has its expertise and focus on putting out printed graphic scores in book format.
When performing live Mads Emil Nielsen creates new spheres of glitchy rhythm, or nonrhythmic use of percussive sounds, combined with with a skillful mix of peaceful layers or sometimes nothing at all. All from from his modular setup and his Medusa-like sea of patch cables.
