Nick Schofield is a Gatineau-based musician, producer and technical director with a BFA in Electroacoustic Studies from Concordia University.

Nick is an active musician who has performed at Place des Arts for MUTEK Montreal, the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, SXSW in Austin and the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, opening for artists like Angel Olsen, Colin Stetson, Hauschka and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith. His albums have received press coverage from Bandcamp Daily, CBC Q, Exclaim! and the Montreal Gazette. Aquarium Drunkard described him as a “dazzling electronic artist” and Constellation records as a “synth maven”.

As a solo musician, Nick Schofield releases ambient music via Backward Music label. His debut album Water Sine (2018) was an antidote to insomnia, his sophomore album Glass Gallery (2021) channeled inspiration from the architecture of the National Gallery of Canada, and his new release Ambient Ensemble (2024) features distant piano, vintage synths and faded orchestral arrangements resounding in spacious natural reverb.

Nick has been an artist-in-residence twice at the Banff Centre for the Arts. His artistic practice has received support from Canada Council for the Arts, SOCAN Foundation and FACTOR. His sound design has scored exhibitions at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and The Hole Gallery in New York City. He actively records and performs with his projects Saxsyndrum, Rêves sonores and Best Fern. Artists he has worked with include Devon Welsh, Eve Parker Finley, Ada Lea, L CON, Cedric Noel, Pony Girl, Orchidae, Ky Brooks and BUCKO.

For ten years he hosted Underground Sounds on CKUT in Montreal, frequently voted Best Radio Host and Radio Show by CULT Montreal.
