What’s in a name?
For 15 years I’ve used the name “nebula” as a performing and recording artist.
Now I have the opportunity to release some recorded music, and I must face the reality that my stage name doesn’t suit me any more. In 1996 I started calling myself “nebula” when I was producing an ill-fated hip hop act. Then in 1997, I was half of a live electronic duo called “infindebula”. Ironically, the other half of the duo had named us that without even knowing I had been calling myself “nebula”. It seemed like fate. I became “nebula from infindebula”.
A few years later I joined Jason Prine in another live electronic duo. We decided to concatenate our names with a simple dot, and “PRiNE.nebula” was the result.
After all these projects ran their course, I found myself producing strange techno music and performing. I still used the name “nebula” on all promotional material.
More recently, I have found myself appearing on lineups with more accomplished artists, most of whom use their real name, or at least a human-sounding name. Considering that and the fact that there are other artists recording as “nebula”, it was time for a change. I may continue to use “nebula” for specific (or nostalgic) projects, but from this time forward, my bookings and recordings will bear the name…
