Brandon Nickell (b. 1981 Oakland, California) currently resides and operates the Isounderscore record label in San Francisco's Mission District and records and performs uncompromising noise, experimental, and electronic music. Nickell has recorded under the computer-based electronic music and noise Aemae project since 2002 which was characterized by brutal synth-based noise yet highly detailed compositions that exhibit formant-based frequencies as well as other uncommon synthesis-based techniques. Now recording and performing under his own name, he most recently released the critically-acclaimed full-length album "And If You Set This Mind Of Mine Afire Then On MY Bloodstream I Yet Will Carry You" in 2010 and has releases due out in the Spring of 2011 on Monorail Trespassing in Los Angeles and Third Sex in Chicago. Nickell is currently working on a collaboration with Heidi Alexander (The Sandwitches, ex-The Fresh & Onlys) for Accidie Records and for his solo work is moving towards a direction of live electronic music performance instead of computer-based noise in both recording and live contexts. He also currently curates a monthly Amnesia Noise Night series in the San Francisco Mission District, bringing together some of the best genre-pushing noise, electronic music, grindcore, black metal, and experimental acts along the West Coast.
