Hrdvsion’s obsession with morphing sounds and musical hardware continues to be the main inspiration for his musical explorations. Growing up in a musical home, with a harpsichord, guitar, an electric piano and a throng of bush band instruments brought Nathan Jonson into the world of Hrdvsion. Easy access to these instruments led to his interest in abusing sound by the age of 8. His remaining formative years included a focused foray into the over-edited, deconstructed sounds of influences such as Squarepusher and Aphex Twin. In his early performing years, Nathan’s chopped and disjointed sounds presented an interesting contrast to the seamless sounds of his brother, Mathew.How, 10 years later, he has begun fusing Techno with experimental music to create something both dance-friendly and adventurous. His music is often about abusing software and hardware to achieve sounds that may not otherwise be possible through 'normal' uses of the equipment. For his first MUTEK appearance, Hrdvsion will be presenting an exclusive set designed around transitions, morphing one sound into another and experimenting with sounds over time, while maintaining an overall musical quality.
