Aux.78 is not set to genre and constantly bounces from type. Strongly influenced by Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, and John Lennon on the lyrical side, Aux.78 challenges listeners to evaluate themselves and their environment. On the instrumental side Aux.78 is strongly influenced by Jazz fundamentals of exploration and experimentation though not locked in jazz. These concepts are applied to electronic and acoustic based recording and performance. Some artists that influence Aux are Brian Eno, Ornette Coleman, Miles Davis, and Tortoise. Aux.78 experiments with Film score and technical dance pieces. Music has been Nicholas Matta's mistress from the age of 6 and along the way he has compiled an impressive self produced and performed catalog that is hard to pigeon hole. Aux.78 is not a scatterbrain, but a highly creative and imaginative artist that pushes boundaries and borders.
