Nicolás Sánchez is a Colombian sound artist, electronic musician and producer who focuses his practice on the philosophical and physical aspect of sound. Influenced by currents such as Musique concrète, noise and syncretism, a large part of his work illustrates and discusses such thoughts through the plasticity of sound. Nicolas also works as a DJ under the Nyksan alias. Furthermore, his Unterbog project has freshened and consolidated the underground electronic music subculture surrounding Techno in Colombia since almost a decade.
Now based in London, Nicolas is co-founder of the Ambient label Hoy Records and Tratratrax, a record label created to showcase the relationship between Perreo (as a resistance sound of Latin America) and electronic/future sounds and narratives. He has delivered sonic journeys at NTS, Sónar, Ars Electronica, Baum Festival, Video Club, Brilliant Corners, amongst others.

“[H]yper-artificiality, through which design is enabled to approach more nearly to the natural, is a condition at once super-technological and poetic, a condition of whose potential we are still too little aware. Endowed with quasi-divine powers – speed, omniscience, ubiquity – we are yet to become Telematic Nomads, whose attributes approximate ever more closely to those of the ancient gods of mythology.”
