After studying dance, Kirikoo Des aka NSDOS, felt the need to create his own sound in order to explore movement. This is how he started imagining a whole new sonic order, an alternative approach to music –through abstraction. NSDOS can’t limit himself to existing technological tools and software, he prefers creating his own mediums: futurist instruments made of old audio converters (carte son), Gameboy emulators, pieces of metal dismantled and welded together, giving form to surreal machines. Surrounded by his hybrid tools, NSDOS unravels the rectilinear anatomy of techno music. Textures are exploded, sounds mutilated, and brought back to their essence. NSDOS initiated this sonic odyssey in his native Paris before exploring it deeper in Berlin, a city that he sees as a giant laboratory in which he experiments with the field of possibilities. A huge admirer of the Dada and Lettrism movements, NSDOS can be considered as the offspring of DIY culture.
In his latest album, Intuition, he was inspired by meteorological stations. Using the principles of «bio feedback», NSDOS surveyed the movements of nature and turned them into data before translating them into sounds, textures and rhythms. His alternative vision and the way he reinterprets technological tools have made him one of the most important techno hackers of his generation.
NSDOS is part of the SHAPE program.
