Hey guys, I’m Nick

Hey! My name is Nick and I am a senior studying economics in the Arts and Sciences School. My only formal music training would be my ~3 years of piano lessons when I was in elementary school.

As with nearly everyone, although I have always loved music, my interests seemed peak as I grew older and my experiences broadened, especially in college. While I appreciate virtually all forms of music, my favorite genres include hip-hop, punk rock, various forms of electronic / techno, and the more-recently popular trap. I want to explore creating music within each of these genres, but I think right now my primary end goal for the class is to develop a fluid and creative trap song. Within trap, my favorite artists include Baauer, Yellow Claw, and RL Grime, but there is so much good trap music on the internet that my playlists are always evolving. Additionally, I love the sounds of Kanye’s Yeezus album (especially “Hold My Liquor” and “I am a God”) and want to experiment with something along those lines.

I am very open to collaborating with anybody in the class, so please reach out to me if you have any ideas!
