Born in New York but of Chilean heritage, Nicolas Jaar was brought up between Soho and Santiago, where he played his first scales on the piano. At 17 years old, he released his first tracks on Wolf + Lamb, Circus Company and finally, on his own label, Clown and Sunset. He quickly garnered praise for the sensitivity and refinement of his output. In 2011, he issued his Space Is Only Noise, his widely acclaimed debut album, a work that relishes in a slow-moving journey to navigate some troubled waters. The record delivers on dreamy, melancholy melodies akin to Erik Satie and turn-of-the-century electronic poetry. Since then, the young artist’s musical maturity has made headways around the world.
For this debut Seattle / Decibel performance Nicolas will be performing live with dB veteran visual artist Tarik Barri
