Our new friend's performance was something unique to Tinta's people, he was literally painting with his words, audience was simply amazed. Jazz, ambient,  noise and his beautiful language made an atmosphere we can't forget. Keep up Your attitude, man!

"Just wanted to send you a virtual thanks for your concert at Kukemuru Ambient festival. We really enjoyed it - you have great talent for storytelling, and the tracks blended in perfectly. The cover of The Book of Love was the cherry on top. Cheers, and best of luck. Hope to see you again some other time!"

The show reminded me of the (widely unknown) collection of poems by Jim Morrison, called “An American Prayer“, to which the remaining doors added a soundtrack in 1978 - I hope, his mystic trip might inspire your dreams as well . . ;)) best regards - christof

"The beauty of being a Danish artist living in Norway, visiting Finland and then meeting an American whose joy in life is to share and spread the love of art and its community in this world. Fascinating and inspiring!!"

"MODEM gave space to the event of BanZaj #17 - Nikolas List Usa/Mex / Hans / Tpsrprt at Modem where a wide range of artists celebrated the noise music. This time the utopia of John Cage, the pioneer of non-standard use of musical instruments came true, namely the usage of noise for composing will continue and grow till we start using the electronic instruments that enable us to reach other musical aims by using any kinds of sounds. This time two Hungarian and one international artists performed on stage. First Tpsrprt performed with a rather classic electronic sounding, it was followed by HANS who already got engaged with abstract noise impressions in its sounding and tools too. The event was topped with the solo concert of Nikolas List who mixed professional sound bits and created feelings, led the audience to a special mood and raised personal memories. The international artist who has ancestors from all around the world now arrived to Debrecen from Brussels. The artist initiated discussion with the audience among the musical runs, this way helping and guiding the audience through a journey of thoughts."

"It was a huge pleasure to join Nikolas on his sound-trip around the world. The subtle use of field-recordings and ambient noises evoked a calm and fascinating atmosphere, combined with short and charming introductions to each track. Very proud that Nikolas was the one in charge to open our new silent series !"

"Nikolas played last night here in Frankfurt for us, and it was a pretty amazing show! He took us on a trip around the world with his field recordings turned 'dance-tracks'. Combined with his energetic (and chaotic) introductions to each track, this made for a very interesting evening. Please return in the future!"

"The organic level of sound: it is all melting softly together, calmly absorbed within this. Field recordings and synthetic sounds, speakers room and stories build a engaging narrative"

the kind you need to feed the best sides of yourself"

"Nikolas played at Frantasia for the first time this year. His work prompted movement in the audience. Surprise is key in this genre—and Nikolas had that. You would swear you were traveling in different parts of the world and space—leading to visions that left you reeling in your mind. Nikolas listens intently to others and as he was performing you knew he was listening to the audience as well, creating in the moment.”

“Nikolas List was one of our headliners for the annual Blurred Edges festival. His appearance was bedded in the company of musicians as Patrick Mcginnly Antez, Stefan Schneider, Miki Yui and Thomas Tilly. Nikolas surprises us with a solid techno set, which was flavoured with well choosen field recordings, voices and other sounds of unknown origin. Everything was shifted with a great sensibility on his actionboard, him alone on a dark stage. He definitely marked the far point on this years musical scale. 40 minutes in which he polishes his sound sources to a shining diamond of unearthly beauty. A big merci from Hörbar in Hamburg.”

“Planant et diablement dansant, Origamiz est pour moi un généreux trip électro-acoustique qui me rappelle souvent les fabuleux bricolages électroniques de Matmos ou de Console.  Les ambiances captées en Afrique ouvrent dans le cœur de Nikolas des perspectives sonores qu’il élabore du bout des doigts ou à pleines mains mais qui déchirent tant sur scène que dans les écouteurs.”
