Nonima is the pseudonym of Tam Ferrans, a 26 year old noisenik from the sunny climates of Scotland.

He has released three full length albums Fear Of Mathematics, Wrpdata and Karmadebt as well as an out-takes collection titled Scream Unheard. A new release through the Tres Catorce label titled Bit Encryption was released in November 2010, of which he calls “the missing piece of Karmadebt, but are two halves of the same coin”. Its style however appears lighter in tone and more ambient than the album itself. He was involved in a project between 2007 and 2009 with theAudiologist which imaginatively was called Nonima & theAudiologist, and through this partnership saw the release of three well received full length albums and an EP entitled “Fragile Shards”. These albums’ tracks were created and culled from live sessions recorded between the two artists and then given some later tweaks and overdubs whilst attempting to retain their spontaneity and flow. They would later abandon this alias in 2010 to move onto their more studio based and current project, Altered:Carbon. Nonima also runs the Section 27 label, a non-profit Creative Commons Licensed platform for what he calls “a place that releases the sounds that tickle the synapses” and is an active supporter of underground electronic music.
