Nikita Bugaev


Nikita Bugaev, a sound designer from Irkutsk (a town near Lake Baikal, the world's oldest and deepest freshwater lake), constantly finds himself in the gray area between music and sound art. Using Max/MSP and programmed Monome devices (Aleph and Grid) for his sound installations, Nikita also composes music. His debut tape, a set of 19 short and precise drone soundscapes, was released with the Danish label Phinery in early 2015.

For Nikita, there's no difference between noise and music—all his compositions and sound installations are actually made of noise split into tiny grains and then organized into complex structures full of hidden melodies and subtle dynamic nuance.
