Doug Van Nort is an experimental musician whose work is dedicated to the creation of immersive and visceral sonic experiences, and to personal and collective creative expression through composition, free improvisation and generally electro-acoustic means of production. His instruments are custom-built systems that draw on concepts ranging from spectral re-synthesis to evolutionary processes and machine listening algorithms, while his source materials include any and all sounds discovered through attentive listening to the world.
If, Bwana was born on New Year’s Eve 1984, making music that has swung between fairly spontaneous studio constructions and more process-oriented composition.
