After leaving her hometown in the south of Germany in early years, moving to England and back again, Nika Son headed up north and started to visit the Hamburg artschool. First active in drawing/installation she finished her studies as a sound artist and musician.
Her way from sculptural to sound-sculptural work and the early influence of Musique Concrète and the outer space of electronic music, leading her to a love for manipulated field recordings, filtered tape-loops, analogue synthesis and knocking radiowaves.
As a DJ (Nikae) she also runs two regular nights at the notorious Hamburg Golden Pudel Club (Next Time & Noctuidae) and releases her music on her own label Noctui.
Compilation appearances on differing labels, such as MMODEMM, SKY WALKING, ANTI-GHOST MOON RAY…
Her newest collaborative project is called C with the musician F#X/E.K.G.
