Nicolas Fellas is a sound engineer/sonic enthusiast
exploring the field of sound & its importance in our
daily lives as an essential tool for our existence.
At an early age, being exposed to psychedelic music
and synthesizer based sounds sparked an interest
in exploring the existence of these sounds and
how powerful of an impact they have on the listener.
Throughout the early years, diving into electronic music
dictated the future path that will be taken as a career
and as a hobby / passion, specifically after listening
to acid music created using the Roland TB-303.
Deciding to pursue a career in the music industry,
Nicolas moved to Berlin to study Electronic Music
Performance to gain the skills needed to explore
sound production on a professional level, followed
by studying Sound Engineering to master the technical
skills required for working in the field of sound
During the studying period, an interest in Electronics
and Synthesizers led to a path of developing different
devices such as an Electromagnetic Field Pickup, A
biodata sonification device, and a series of Eurorack
standard synthesizer building blocks designed for DIY
beginner friendly & budget workshops to inspire and
motivate creators & artists to explore the sound field
These devices then opened the door to curating & presenting
installations in different cities & venues around Europe.

After completing the Sound Engineering BA,
Nicolas started an internship at MONOM studio
as a Technical Assistant , helping with several
day to day tasks , in addition to helping artists
explore the 4DSOUND system & supporting them with
technical knowledge to materialize their ideas
When the internship period was over, Nicolas was
employed as a Technician to continue supporting
Artists and working on technical advancements for
the studio , in addition to preparing for many
events, performances, and installations including
Jean Michel Jarre
Red Bull Music Academy
Richie Hawtin CLOSE
This led to opportunities such as a 1 month residency at the SSI,
where a spatial composition was developed for GOOGLE I/O,
which was presented at their yearly conference in San Francisco.
These experience opened the door to a different understanding
of the potential of the 4DSOUND system, which strongly affirmed
the already existent interest and fascination in spatial sound,
which enforced the commitment and focus of establishing a career
in the spatial sound field as a Technical Manager of The Works.
Currently based in Budapest, Nicolas is providing technical support
as the Technical Manager of The Works Research Institute and also
Organizing a series of monthly DIY workshops of Eurorack modules
in collaboration with the Anti Social Society center.
still on a constant path of exploration & knowledge expansion,
Nicolas is always looking for the next opportunity to share
and learn with intent to impact individuals and encourage
them to also explore their own interests and paths, creating
artists & supporting culture by emphasizing the importance
of collective knowledge & awareness through sound .
