Once a French electronic music rising star, he played his deceptively simple, melody-driven bangers across Europe, including festivals such as Sonar, Nuits Sonores, Distortion and Reworks (to name a few) and countless venues and clubs. He’s been relying on Ableton Live ever since his first gig back in 2005. 

His rare output  – produced with Ableton Live – has been playlisted and acclaimed by the likes of Busy P and Justice, Brodinski, Mark Ronson, Kanye West, BBC Radio, Trax magazine, Libération and numerous amazing indie acts. 

Over the past decade, Nil's spent all his energy perfecting his craft and compulsively learning about anything music related. With a solid experience in teaching, he is a natural when it comes to sharing knowledge and conveying his enthusiasm for creation. 

His goal as an educator is simple: to find answers to your questions. It’s all about your art. 

Nil teaches an Ableton Live-centric, electronic music composition and production course in Lyon. He also offers all sorts of one-to-one tuition and consulting services. 

His upcoming EP “[~]”, due for release by the end of 2020, focuses on real-time synthesis and live-coded algorithmic composition.
