“Etude n°1” is featured on the “New Frontiers of electronic music” compilation by Unexplained Sounds Group.
“Frontiers: the limit of knowledge or the most advanced achievement in a particular field, or an outer limit in a field of endeavor, especially one in which the opportunities for research and development have not been exploited. Difficult to say when, in the musical aesthetics field, we can apply that definition. Certainly it’s always an arbitrary and limited choice. By all means I tried to collect a group of musicians and sound designers who make a great effort into stretching the electronic and electro-acoustic music possibilities, searching for new expression paths, mostly indifferent to music trends. They come from Sweden, US, Canada, Italy, France, Japan, Belgium, Scotland, Germany, and some of them are well known to the Unexplained Sounds network followers. Others are recent discoveries from the underground experimental electronic scene. All united by the same passion to explore the frontiers of unknown and possible musics.”
The new acousmatic music piece “Freeze Down” will be played at the “En chair et en son” italian festival on june the 23rd 2017, in Cortile del Complesso San Vittorino, Benevento. This festival is dedicated to the encounter between butoh dance and acousmatic music.
Marie-Thérèse Sitzia will be the dancer performing butoh on Nod Akami’s music at this event.
This piece was a work-in-progress, being the prelude and central bone to the (soon finished) first acousmatic composition by Nod Akami.

Nod Akami is preparing a VJ set for The Legendary Pink Dots on April the 1rst 2017, at 5 p.m. in Les Gigottos Automates, 3bis rue de Bergues – 59470 Esquelbecq, during the 11th Musique au Musée en Flandre festival inaugural day, thanks to Amikal Sonic.
Born in 1979 in France, Nod Akami works in the fields of electronic and electroacoustic music, digital collage, and video.
Nod Akami’s working processes are inspired by surrealists’ automatic-writing, using experimentation as a way to explore intuition, randomness, mathematics and generative art. Be it in music or images, he works with collages of material which emerged from randomness and improvisation, then carefully selected, molded and reassembled.
After practicing digital collage through still pictures, he went into video through video-jockey (VJ) tools as a way to push collage to the animated form. After learning new tools for fractal animation and video generation, he now also works on assembling his own music and personal videos.
