ABOUT
QUALIATIK is a multimedia artist, producer, performer, and engineer traversing the barriers between science, pscyhology, and metaphysics. Their feverishly introspective music envelopes the listener in dynamic emotional landscapes that pull a thread from the subconscious and unravel the folds of one’s internal world with a gentle vulnerability. Informed by an academic background in neuroscience and a preoccupation with technology’s role in the evolution of the human brain, QUALIATIK’s work has a distinctly transhumanist edge, with an empathic impulse that frames their inquiry as an incisive exploration of the human subconscious. “Ethereal, restless, and bursting with life,” QUALIATIK's work draws a sharp arrow inward, following its path toward the depths of the psyche.

Their passionately DIY, autodidactic approach finds them conceptualizing, creating, and executing every aspect of their work with an endless thirst for expression through new forms of media. This includes 3D visual accompaniment for their live show, virtual and augmented reality experiences interactive computer programs, tattoos, and detailed, elegiac pen drawings that allude to the fervedly subconscious nature of their work.

QUALIATIK is the co-founder of NYC-based collective UNSEELIE, and hosts a biweekly DJ Residency at Brookyn DIY venue H0L0, where they feature varied DJs and live acts from NYC and touring artists from across the world. They are newly a resident at Rinse FM, serving a firm nod of credibility to their vision as both an artist and a tastemaker. QUALIATIK’s debut record, Discarnate, a seven-track enfleshment of the noncorporeal self, is due out on June 1st, 2019 on their own label, Psychoid Devices.
