maker of the same name. Musically they are hard to categorise. Funky, noise, fuzz, synth, beatboxing, free jazz improv and electronica. All equally describe the shifting and restless sonic and rhythmic qualities that exists within tracks on the album. "Ultimately", says Nimzo-Indian, "I'm mostly interested in how the instruments I make can be used to make new sounds, something surprising that I get excited about, and then how I can collage these together to make interesting pieces of music. "Describing the musical genre is tricky, ultimately, I'm more comfortable with film references. Psycho, Delicatessen, Akira, Playtime, The Apartment, Die Hard, North By Northwest. Or maybe they are the soundtrack to a film yet to be made". Nimzo-Indian have been making miniature guitars and turntables as well as other experimental sound making objects over the past few years. "In a way, making musical things was an extension of making visual art". Previously working as an Aircraft engineer, illustrator and for a circus school, this eclectic background has finally found a place to co-exist in the music making.
