Nicolas Jaar: Noise

Fleetwood Mac, Nicolas Jaar, Drake and more in our weekly music recap

The Avant/Garde Diaries sat down with recent Brown University graduate Nicolas Jaar in an extensive interview that sheds light on his creative process and the themes he is exploring in his current work. One of such topics is broken technology, which Jaar captures through “Noise,” a short tune that channels his thoughts on what it means to be so connected. Of his look at the darker side of things, Jaar says, “The place I’m in now is a much more difficult place to make music in. What I’m interested in saying is more complex. I’m just not interested in showing you a picture of clouds anymore.”
