A complete autodidact, Nicholas began DJ’ing at the age of 11, inspired by the sound of LA's Beat Junkies on the now defunct 92.3 The Beat. After hearing Aphex Twin and Squarepusher at the age of 16, he then took on electronic music. Absorbing the sound design and fabric of Warp Records style electronic music, Morera soon discovered and immersed himself in the world of compositional techniques from such modern classical luminaries as Karlheinz Stockhausen and Pierre Boulez. Gaining a solid understanding of these composers' languages, Nicholas' self-teachings then brought him to the every other year Darmstadt New Music Festival (Internationale Ferienkurse fur Neue Musik) in Darmstadt, Germany - a summer school in contemporary classical music which has hosted a large number of avant-garde composers as both students and lecturers including John Cage, Gyorgi Ligeti, Iannis Xenakis and many more.
As a.d.l.r., Morera takes his progressive compositional ear and feeling and weaves in current forms of sample-based drone, collage, minimal techno, ambience, tape music and microsound to create a highly listenable lush and coherent whole of audio ephemera that fits right in line with the immersive sounds of the Non Projects catalog.
