Album Notes
Characterized by its border-crossing energy, Nicholas Chase's music has been hailed by Strad Magazine as 'brilliant,' the Los Angeles Times as 'flamboyant, avant-garde' and 'brawling yet taut...the Rite of Spring meets Metallica,' by the Albuquerque Journal as 'crackling, witty,' by the Whittier Press as 'seamless, powerful... spectacular' and, dubbing him 'Eye/Ear Explorer,' the LA Weekly writes of his short opera 22, 'the human brain at its most imaginative.'

In his ongoing quest for unusual musical possibilities, Chase has played mannequin limbs, walkie-talkies, record-players, transistor radios, sitting inside a piano, riding a bicycle—and more traditionally as a vocalist, a 'cellist, and as a solo pianist on the instrument keys. Chase's musical escapades have been commissioned and performed by the Long Beach Opera, Philadelphia Classical Symphony, the California E.A.R Unit, New Zealand's 175 East, and numerous soloist internationally. He has headlined festivals in Europe and the US as a composer, performer and improviser who integrates kinetic visuals with strong musical statements. In 2008, his interactive, site-specific composition NOVA: Transmission for FM radio and closed-circuit TV was exhibited as part of the Whitney Biennial in New York. Chase and his band, The UFOrchestra, have staged and screened his serial film/performance project Eleven Ideas in Hollywood, Las Vegas, San Francisco, and Helsinki, and been featured on WMHT TV, New York, while Chase has been interviewed and featured for his chamber music on Other Minds Radio, NPR's Kalvos and Damien and New Music Bazaar, and Salve Television in Germany.
