Nicholas Bullen is an artist and composer based in Birmingham, England.
Working across a range of media (including sound, text, film, installation and performance), his work explores strategies for the transmutation of elements and systems of communication.
Beginning as a founder member of the ‘extreme’ music group Napalm Death at the age of 13, he has an over 30 year history of composition (releasing over 40 recordings) and live performance (both solo and collaboratively) . Recent sound performances focus on the use of environmental recordings as the basis of fixed media acousmatic composition alongside live improvisation and signal processing in real-time.
His work has been performed or exhibited both in the United Kingdom (including Tate Britain, Institute of Contemporary Arts, Hayward Gallery, Serpentine Gallery, and Arnolfini Gallery) and globally (including Art Basel, White Columns, Creative Time, Schirn Kunsthalle, and MACBA).
