In 2000 he completed his diploma in Audio Engineering Technology and went on to study more music theory at Frederick Chopin’s Music school in Mississauga, Canada.

The release of his newest album "Staring at the sun from the spirit pit" His fourth release on the paper+sound label, ten years in the making and one of naw's most personal releases to date. Using field recordings, found sounds, live instrumentation and synthesized interpretations, naw weaves seven personal experiences into a story taking the listener through a process that blurs the line between reality and subconscious experiences. This album asks what is real and what is imagined. Borrowing from his own academic studies in transpersonal anthropology, naw tells his own story by looking at the relationship between altered states of consciousness and the culture we live in, that strives to explain experience in tangible easy-to-grasp ways. How do you explain things that are purely experiential by nature? naw began composing electronic music over 30 years ago with explorations in audio art and experimental music. His interest in sound and technology has led him to a continued questioning and refinement of audio tools and modes of production resulting in experimentation with altered instruments, modified devices and custom software environments. naw’s music is warm, atmospheric and cinematic. With sound design firmly grounded in the traditions of dub studio culture alongside the more formal style of contemporary composition, naw’s music defies classification. https://phoniq.net https://nawmusic1.bandcamp.com/album/staring-at-the-sun-from-the-spirit-pit http://www.paperplusound.com/wordpress/nawstaring-at-the-sun-from-the-spirit-pit - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - COMiNG SOON: Sunday November 25th 2018 .
