Biography

The music of Nicolas Bernier is somewhere between the old and the new. It is made with a modern apparatus but feels like completely handmade. It is gently articulated textures alongside enormous masses. It is electronic music made from objects of the past: typewriter, old machines, tuning forks, soundscape memorys and, yes, musical instruments.

Bernier is joyfully flowing from musique concrète to live electronics, installations, art video, modern music, post-rock, ambient and glitch while also working with dance, theatre and cinema. In the midst of this eclecticism, his artistic concerns remain constant: the balance between the cerebral and the sensual, and between organic sound sources and digital processing.

His works have been of interest for events like Prix Ars Electronica (Austria), SONAR (Spain), Mutek (Canada), DotMov Festival (Japan), Transmediale (Germany) and have been published on lovely labels like Crónica (Portugal), Ahornfelder (Germany), leerraum (Switzerland) and Home Normal (United Kingdom).
