The what, why and when,
Hi!. My name’s Nicc. I’m what you would call a music nerd. My first job in music was when I was 14 years old and I’ve never looked back. I’m a Musicologist obsessed with musical genres and how music affects our brain. I was a professional DJ for 16 years which included a 6 year residency at the famous Pacha Ibiza. With my career, I was fortunate enough to travel to many different corners of the earth in my early 20’s. I studied sound engineering and music theory and played a decent guitar (15 years ago:). I’m a Dutch born, Spain raised, English educated music nerd, living in Sydney Australia.
Music is more than a hobby, it’s an all consuming passion that I’ve turned into a career. I strongly believe in the power of music and its ability to connect, heal, inspire and benefit us in so many ways. The great thing is that science can now prove this!
In 2014 I decided to start a company to build a technology to empower every human, through music. Muru Music is the startup. I picked this name because it has meaning to me. I started the company at a stage of my life where I was presented with several paths I didn’t necessarily want to go down, so I chose a new path... “Muru” means “Journey, in a dialect of the Cadigal people, the original custodians of the land that we now call Sydney.
Muru Music = Music Journey
My mission is as big as it is bold, and I occasionally write about it here
