Aurality is a sonic research that grew outwards from a study of early American minimalism and traditional musics in their modern forms. By means of field recordings, tonal, algorithmic and radio experiments throughout immersive performances, Niko de Paula Lefort a.k.a. nikoLFO engages with bioacoustics, microtonality and polyrhythm to mend the vibrational fabric of inner and outer spaces.
