In April 2014, Nick Millevoi released his latest [and greatest] album: Numbers on the Side.

Numbers on the Side is Nick’s fourth solo guitar recording, picking up where 2012’s In White Sky (The Flenser) left off, using the 12-string electric guitar to delve more deeply into feedback, drone, and noise.

Recorded in July 2013 at West Philadelphia’s Rotunda by engineer Eric Carbonara, the sound of this album relies heavily on the 103-year-old building’s high ceilings and 80-ft dome to help create the sonic space for this intense music.

By Kinan Faham

"the Silent Camera" was conceived in 2009 and was inspired by the music of Arvo Part especially his piece "Silentium". I perceive the modern world as oscillating between two extremes that are analogous to two of Arvo Part's pieces: "Perpetuum Mobile" represents the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the sea of people surrounding you, the noise in the streets, the deadlines, the challenges and the lessons to learn, the new technologies and risks facing our civilization, the musical pieces you learn [or fail to master],.. etc. "Silentium" represents the resolution of every musical note, every spoken word and every movement of your day. It is the moment that you are most likely to remember after the day's noise has settled and its turbulence has subsided. It is the moment that we all crave and the moment that will allow us to persist to the next day when the Perpetuum Mobile cycle starts again.
