VVOLVEN (Nathan Alexander Wolfe) is a queer composer, producer, sound designer, and multi-instrumentalist. They often delve into the abstract, looking to showcase their unique point of view. Whether they create audio for linear or non-linear media, their outside of the box thinking is sure to shine through on any project. Inspired by artists such as Björk, Arca, ANOHNI, SOPHIE, ionnalee, Tim Hecker, and Oneohtrix Point Never, electronic music is at the core of all that they creates. Ambient and atmospheric textures are their home, but they are always ready to experiment. They uses their experience as a percussionist to guide their compositions. Their deep interest in Japanese music and instruments also influences their work.
VVOLVEN's debut single, DISCONTENT, brings their anger and frustration to focus. Anxious and crippling sounds are inescapable.
VVOLVEN's debut EP, ANOMALOUS, explores their journey as a queer person. Each track focuses on different portions of their life: their innocent and naive childhood, questioning their sexuality and gender identity as a teen, hiding who they are as a teen, and being happy and comfortable with their current state of being in the present.
VVOLVEN was the composer and sound designer for the indie video game EMBOWER. The EMBOWER (Original Game Soundtrack) is heavily inspired by The Legend of Zelda video game series.
For VVOLVEN's latest project, they are collaborating with some of their closest friends to perform covers of songs by artists that are important to them and their collaborators. They have released a cover of Best Coast's "Our Deal" with Halley Neal, a cover of Antony and the Johnsons' "Hope There's Someone" with David Maluki, and has most recently released a cover of SOPHIE's "Infatuation" with Taro. More covers and collaborations are to come on the mixtape DIGGING DEEP, which will release in 2024.
VVOLVEN is currently working as the composer and sound designer on an upcoming short film, "MEDDLER."
