Musician and sound artist born 1987 in Barcelona, currently based in Berlin. Influenced by ambient, drone, experimental and techno, and with a special interest on psychoacoustics and music technology, he is moving between music, sound art, new media and performance. His debut album ‘Some music comes from the cellar’ was presented at Sonar Barcelona 2009 and released by the spanish label Miga. During the last years, he has been invited to realize multimedia projects in New York, Detroit and Berlin. Meanwhile he founded the Thalamus Lab collective and established connections with art centers and music communities, that he would use to start exploring models of collective creation with the XSL project. Lately, he collaborated with Stratofyzika in the production of Thæta, a movement-based interactive audiovisual performance showcased in Germany and Brasil.

PRESS

“Some music comes from cellar” sounds like a trip into another world. Davic Nod a producer from Barcelona builds up wonderful atmospheres with shuffling beats and hypnotic sounding pads. Some parts of this ep reminds me of the present works of Röyksopp mixed up with a little bit Massive Attack on the other side. Every track paints his unique pictures in my head and i can get totally lost within the sound. One of my highlights is the Mi Nube Remix by Davic Nod. A wonderful piano layer over a epic atmosphere. This EP is definitely one of my highlights this year. If you like atmospheres and sometimes strange arrangements this one could also easily become a highlight for you.”

Markus Scholz from Netlabelism

“After appearing at the 2009 Sonar Festival, Davic Nod turned his attention to this glorious EP – at times eerie and eccentric, and other times, drenched in a Boards of Canada vibe. Two tracks feature the talents of classically trained Gabriela Parra.”

“El trabajo de Davic Nod es emotivo, bonito y con algunos detalles ciertamente prometedores.”

“The work of Davic Nod is emotional, beautiful and with some details certainly promising.

Christian Negre from Phlow Magazine

“…os presento las canciones con las que yo le descubrí y que no me canso de escuchar.”

“…I present you the songs with which I discovered him that I’m never tired of listening.”

Miguel Ángel Lastra from Vjspain

“Un excelente EP en el que su creador apuesta por una electrónica evocadora y plácida, con canciones que después de una primera escucha parece que siempre han estado entre nuestra colección de discos.”

“An excellent EP in which the creator goes for an evocative and placid electronic, with songs that after a first listen seem to have always been among our record collection.”

“Otro tipo sutil que se mueve por espacios etéreos y minimalistas es Davic Nod con su música salida del sótano.”

“Another subtle type that moves between ethereal and minimalist spaces is Davic Nod with his music out of the basement.”

Johnny Delay from Headless Community

“Nice ambient/electronica album, made by Davic Nod, from Barcelona ( according to the Miga netlabel introduction text, Barcelona – and Cataluna – seems to be an interesting place for electronic music… Everybody knows Sonar music festival, but I’m sure there are a lot of new and interesting artists in Cataluna, please, Miga netlabel, let us know !)”

“このDavic Nod、プロフィールを見ると、あのジェフ・ミルズをして「現在存在するフェスティバルの中で最高のクオリティをもつ」といわしめた、あのスペイン、バルセロナの最先端エレクトロ・ミュージックのフェス、Sónarに出演したというミュージシャン。そしてこのアルバムは、そのSónarの時の音源と新作などをあわせたアルバムとなっている模様。

あのSónar出演ミュージシャンなので、期待して聴いてみると、静謐ななかにも、どこかスケール感があったり、意外性のある、ちょっとグリッチが入った曲もあったりと、なかなか楽しめる内容となっている。さすが、Sónar出演はダテじゃないと思わせるアルバム。オススメ。”

“Denn die Körperimpulse aus den aktiven Muskelkontraktionen der Tänzerin wurden mit einer Licht- und Soundmaschinerie verbunden. Die so entstehenden Licht- und Klangkonstellationen basierten auf dem Prinzip der Rückkopplung mit ihren Muskelkontraktionen. Vorgeführt wurde also eine Symbiose zwischen Mensch und Maschine und der aufmerksamen Betrachter sollte ihren Körper als mit den Reaktionen von Klang und Licht verbunden, wahrnehmen.”
