, the wonder kid of electronic music, has shared a new video alongside his interview
on The Avant/Garde Diaries
, a digital interview magazine that documents personal views on the avant-garde. The gifted musician spoke about his journeys into the abyss to ponder the complexities of making music today and announced that he’s completed his second LP, the follow-up to ‘Space Is Only Noise’. In the video that was produced by Callie Barlow & Bennett Barbakowm, directed by Richard Parks and soundtracked by his own music (Noise), Jaar can be seen floating in deep blue water. A video that somehow can express all the feelings that overwhelm someone that listens to his music.
The feeling of freedom that comes from letting go and allowing your mind and body to speak is very important for creating anything. I guess I’m obsessed with that freedom. The real beauty in music is finding something sacred deep inside, but I feel like the older I grow the more distractions there are.
Nicolas Jaar was born the 10th of January 1990 in New York but spent most of his childhood in Santiago de Chile. Haunted by Mulatu Astatke and Erik Satie, he started making electronic music in 2004. At the age of 17, he made his debut on Wolf + Lamb records. Now 23 years old, Nico runs his own label Clown & Sunset and released his debut album, Space is Only Noise, two years ago.
