About me

About Me: 
Dubbed by L.A. Weekly as an ‘Eye/Ear Explorer,’ and described by the L.A. Times as “the Rite of Spring meets Metallica,” Nicholas "Staxx" Chase's music has been performed internationally by the likes of the California EAR Unit, Southwest Chamber Music, New Zealand’s 175 East, Long Beach Opera and the Philadelphia Classical Symphony. Chase’s film11 Ideas has been shown across the US and Europe, and his improvising trio NIRUSU III has been acclaimed by the L.A. Weekly as “pushing the edge of audio/visual improv,” while his interactive audio/visual composition Transmission was featured at the 2008 Whitney Biennial. Chase recently published theoretical writings on his unique mind/body/music practice and released "Voluptuous: Works for Solo Piano" featuring compositions that integrate his philosophy.
