Nail Jung is my Solo Electronic music project. More influenced by Autechre of late, some of these works are composed, some improvised, and most are usually a combination. Experiments with a musical system as composition, and explorations into sound design and programming.
I have 2 official albums out now: Overview Effect, released spring 2019, and “Soft Invaders“, released Fall 2015 (under the original name NAILgun). Another disc is on the way with 3 more planned for this year.
About the name change: When “NAILgun” was first suggested to me many years ago, it stuck, mainly becuase…well, I’m impressionable. I needed a replacement for the original name “Logical Oscillator” which was just too damn long.
A few years ago the new name popped into my head, and it also stuck with me. Considering the proliferation of names like “Gnarles Barkley” and similar plays on names (“Logical Oscillator’s first CD was to be called “Downelectro”, a play on ‘DanElectro”) it seemed like a fine idea. On top of that, there’s a LOT of problems with guns. I myself personally think they could ALL be melted to slag, but that’s a discussion for a different time…
The upshot of all of this is that I’ve decided on Nail Jung, as the official name of the project.
Have a listen, and have a fantastic day!
