This is Albert Gandikal's side project of instrumental electronic music. Even though he started writing music at 18, he had been playing the violin in his school's orchestra since he was 8 years old. Being heavily influenced by Radiohead's Kid A, he began discovering music outside the classical genre, and more so into electronic music. With Albert's main instrument being the violin, he started teaching himself keyboard. This would come in handy when he got his hands on his first D.A.W. (Digital Audio Work Station)
Using sampled instruments, he began creating simple electronic compositions that focused largely on ear shaking sub-bass lines. This quickly became a style he would continue using and is evident in many of his songs. In his early writing, he would combine alternative singing with an electronic foundation. later on however, he would find that having just an electronic foundation wasn't enough; and decided to also write pure electronic music under the name Nigh Coulomb.
Coulomb being a substantial measurement of electric charge, (Named after physicist Charles-Augustin de Coulomb). And nigh meaning near, almost.
Which is fitting considering how much resonant keyboards, synths, and various processed drums are put into his work.
whether it be a calm atmosphere encompassed in a digital environment, or a Basement bass driven beat with rugged synths. Nigh Coulomb manages to capture a balance of the two moods while adding some outside influences, that brings everything together into a refreshing sound.
