Shapednoise is Sicilian producer, sound designer, DJ and label founder Nino Pedone. Pedone produces disassembled, distorted techno flawlessly hybridised with abrasive and transcendent sound design. His experimental and unconventional production practices are catalogued across three cerebral album releases;- the 2013 debut ‘The Day of Revenge’ on Hospital Productions, 2015’s Different Selves on Type, and most recently Aesthesis on NumbersAesthesis is a complex, controlled collision of noise and metal with rave and hardcore. The release fully reveals Shapednoise‘s exploration of textural sound research, casting sheets of noise, industrial, the UK’s multilayered rave history, and modern rap production influences to create highly sculptured, at times vividly visual sound designs. At Skaņu Mežs, Shapednoise will present his live show Overweight Subs Mutations, an exploration of the diversity of contemporary rap, trap, textural noise, bass weight, abrasive transcendence, and the idiosyncratic ways sound design bleeds through its various styles.

Shapednoise is an artist of the SHAPE platform for innovative music and audiovisual art, supported by the „Creative Europe” programme of the EU.
