Nick Yulman is an artist and musician based in Brooklyn, NY. He creates song installations using digitally controlled mechanical instruments and singing radios: an experimental approach to producing ecstatic pop music that blurs the boundaries of recording and performance. His interests include the history of technology, folk and community music traditions, and the culture of collecting. He has shown and performed his work at the ISE Cultural foundation, Flux Factory, Smack Mellon, AS 220, the Coney Island Museum, and other venues around New York City.
He records and performs music under name Bone Conductors. The album “Twitches”, released through LuvSound in 2008, can be downloaded here: http://www.luvsound.org/release/luv017
Yulman has also worked with the national oral history project StoryCorps (http://www.storycorps.org) for the last five years, traveling the United States recording interviews and managing the projects’ Recording and Archive department. As an extension of this work, he has begun to incorporate field recording into his artistic practice.
He received a BA in Studio Art and English from Wesleyan University and will start graduate work at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program this fall. For more information go to http://www.nysoundworks.org
