New York, United States

Drummer Jojo Mayer initiated Nerve in spring ‘98 as an experimental platform for a handful of New York musicians interested in the current stream of electronic music styles in DJ culture such as “”, , , , etc., trying to detect and explore recent developments in “intelligent” electronic dance music.

His basic idea was to reverse engineer the textures and rhythms of contemporary digital production within a live performed context. Live drums, bass, keyboards and live interactive sound processing - no loops, sequencers, or pre- production. All sounds are performed in real time!

By cross-pollinating DJ culture with the syntax of jazz interaction and utilizing sound processing techniques usually applied in studio productions (real time audio deconstruction), Nerve has been formulating a highly skilled, kinetic and dynamic of improvisational performed music, which is completely unique to this date.

Within a few months of its existence, Jojo Mayer’s Nerve has generated a tremendous amount of enthusiastic response among New York’s downtown scene and the media, which led to the creation of “Prohibited Beatz”, a multimedia party/event which has established itself as the prime platform of this movement.
