Nathan (Ruler of Program) is the solo project of 15-year-old Nathan Horowitz, who began his electronic journey with an audio production class at Beverly Vista Middle School. Taking inspiration from sources like The Beatles, Marc Rebillet, and Bill Wurtz, his wavy instrumental tracks put a spotlight on anything but the speaker, letting the melody take its place. Horowitz uses a BOSS RC-505 Loop Station, an M-Audio-Keystation 61 MK3, and a laptop running various DAWs to sculpt a variety of sound. While most of his recordings are meticulously worked and mixed with programs, Horowitz favors a loop station for his improvised live performances to achieve what he describes as his "optimal flow."
