Nicolas Tourney (born in Ivry-sur-Seine in 1982) is an experimental French musician, digital artist and manager of the Snow in Water Records label. His musical work focused on questions relating to perception and the act of listening. It uses abundant equipment for this, made up of drones, all-terrain recording devices, DIY prototypes and open source tools. This work has been broadcast since 2019, and has won over a dozen labels in Europe and the United States.
Besides this solo work, he is also producer of electronic music in different projects (The Library Music Institute, Nonsound, Seuil Optique, ...) and interpreter of contemporary music.
Dreaming of an absolute sound, Nicolas Tourney transforms spectra as tangible materials, looking for a third way between graphic notations and perceptual experiences.
