Nico Uris is a first year student from Alicante, Spain, studying Songwriting at BIMM Berlin. We caught up with him to find out more about his life in music.
WHO ARE YOU LISTENING TO AT THE MOMENT?
I’m listening to the song ‘Anchor’ by Novo Amor – an indie singer-songwriter I discovered thanks to BIMM. The college gave me two tickets to a festival his band was playing at and it was one of the most impressive gigs I’ve ever been to. The concert was in an old church with amazing acoustics – and if you mix those with amazing music, you get the perfect concert. I had goosebumps almost all the way through!
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BERLIN?
Ever since I first came to Berlin on holidays, I’ve been totally in love with the city. The thing I love the most is that the city is alive; things are happening all the time and if you fall asleep, you’ll miss it.
Something else I like about Berlin is the constant flow of creativity that goes around the city. You can see the influence of hundreds of different cultures living together in the same space and this is a constant inspiration in my music.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THE BIMM BERLIN SONGWRITING COURSE?
I’ve been making music all my life. For me, art is my way of expressing myself. Some time ago I decided to make music my profession and I wanted to take it to the next level, with professional musicians as teachers, so that’s why I chose BIMM. I really enjoy being surrounded by people with the same creative interest as me. It really encourages me to keep working hard and to improve.
