nSanders is already a well established artist, with a number 1 spot in the National Ambient Charts and holding a top 10 position for over two months under his previous name of nss58. It comes as no surprise then, that ‘Synergy of Seven’ his latest single, is nothing short of excellent. Combining flavours of dreamy ambient music, punchy drums and piano melodies, it is truly unique.
Nsanders has also appeared on Soundlab UK, Chat and Spin Radio, Power Of Prog radio, Youtube and N1M network. More recently he is on constant circulation on 365 Radio Network and is currently studying for a PhD in Music Technology, Sonic Art and Composition at The Anglia Ruskin University.
He has studied an MA Music at Middlesex University gaining a Distinction. He has studied undergraduate music performance, composition and music technology at The Open University, Rockschool OCA and Colchester Institute of HE. nSanders has been playing piano for over 25 years and has performed with a wide range of prominent musicians including Jay Ebby East and The Busker Hounds,,The nss58 Project and Black Spring Rising. He was a prominent professional drummer for numerous bands and has now hung his drum sticks due to hip problems. Nigel also plays guitar, bass and percussion.
Nigel now composes music for the media via The Global Soundgroup, Audiosparx and ambient music for his PhD. He also scores his music for placement on The British Music Collective which includes his electronic works, neo classical, ambient Piano and small orchestral works. This continues to grow with time and the rivers of life.
The track Drowning is an experiment in developing new ambient sound worlds as part of Nigel’s PhD research. It features sound textures he created in Logic Pro X and existing presets along with Roland System 1 original sequences and some drum programming.
The composition gives the sensation of a grey winter morning in which the artist feels overwhelmed by life and the sense of drowning.
