Nika Son



works as a musician, artist, dj and film sound designer after graduating in Fine Arts at Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg in 2012.

Influenced by Musique Concrète and the outer space of electronic music, her compositions are built from manipulated and fragmented fieldrecordings, interweaving with analogue synth lines, knocking radiowaves, rare voice scraps and filtered tape layers.

Distinct releases on differing labels, such as MMODEMM, Sky Walking, Anti-Ghost Moon Ray and on her own label Noctui.

In her work as a sound artist for experimental film, she’s been collaborating with many artists over the years, foremost with the film maker Helena Wittmann.

As a DJ (Nikae) she also runs two regular nights at the notorious Hamburg Golden Pudel Club since 2011 called Next Time (together with Ratkat) and Noctuidae.

Her newest collaborative project is called C with the musician F#X/E.K.G.
