Nick Yulman Bio

Nick Yulman works with sound and interactive media in a variety of contexts including installation art, oral history and music. He has presented his work at venues in New York and beyond including the ISE Cultural foundation, Smack Mellon, MoMa PS1, Flux Factory, UnionDocs, The Museum of the Moving Image, the New York Hall of Science and the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowsky Castle in Warsaw.

Yulman builds musical automata and uses them in projects ranging from interactive sound installations to silent film scores. In 2012 he released the record “Warsaw Machines and Songs with support from the New York State Council for the Arts. He is in the process of developing a modular system called Bricolo to allow other artists, musicians and DJs to easily incorporate musical robotics into their work.

In 2011 Yulman worked with the North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition to create "No Bills", a public sound installation, situated in construction fences, featuring oral histories of long-term residents of Williamsburg and Greenpoint.

Professionally, Yulman has done extensive work with the American oral history project StoryCorps, travelling the country recording interviews and managing their Recording and Archive Department.

He studied at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP), and served as a Resident Research Fellow there from 2012-2013.
