Press Info:
[~] marks a stunning new beginning for French artist Nil Hartman. The record combines a warm sense of improvisation with a sleek computer music aesthetic.

Hartman created [~] through livecoding, an approach using text commands in a programming language to compose and perform music in realtime. What you hear on the record is raw, unedited, one-take recordings. Hartman explains: “These versions are unique, I’ll never be able (or willing!) to play them identically.” The astonishing result is not only a technical tour-de-force but a profoundly emotional journey.

The French artist previously enjoyed early success touring Europe festivals with melody-driven club bangers. Following a complete overhaul of his studio craft through a decade of secluded experiments, he now emerges with a deeply personal approach to electronic music.

[~] was recorded live on July 12th and July 30th, 2020. All tracks arranged and performed in realtime using algorithmic langage Tidal Cycle. All sounds generated in realtime using various types of synthesis. The record was mixed and mastered by the artist.

Infinite love and gratitude to LC, Emaël, Siam and familly, Géraud, Pierre, Kevin, Mondkopf, Jb Hanak, Melted Self and Nicolas Bougaïeff. [~] is dedicated to Louisiane.
