Short Take

Short Take

Nicholson, Musician

Your first memory of creating music?
I remember playing with midi sequencers and synthesizers in the early 90s, but I arranged my first pieces of music on a software called E-magix Music Maker in ’95, and they were probably terrible. 

One thing you always do before going up on stage?
Stretch.

The weirdest audience reaction you've ever seen?
Our audiences for the most part have been really good to us. Apart from a couple of instances that involved inebriated individuals.

Three words that describe your sound?
Dynamic - Ethereal - Cinematic
