William Nurdin, born on french territory in 1980, is a sound artist, composer & electroacoustic musician imbued with an existential desire to bring concrete music to performance.
WN, trained at thirteen years old as a guitarist and eager of instrumental knowledge start to interest about every dimension of sound.
Since the end of the 1990s, WN has worked as a composer using computer and tape recorder, also turned towards phonography of both natural and human-produced sounds.

For the past few years, WN is maybe an existentialist orchestrated human, like a spontaneous indeterminacy aktionist.

His last projects are orienting towards acousmatic music, concrete music, also Harsh Noise Wall Action with his Clougnioule moniker.
He plays in various musical formations, operating in turn guitar, electronic organ, trumophone, drums, broken duck call, Reel-To-Reel or alone with a polypropylene CUP:
"With his "CUP" project his delivering a delicious mix of screeching sounds and boundless, childlike energy, a simple action transformed into an audio event. delivering a deeply melancholic sound which eerily lingegrey in your mind. A performer firmly positioning his own body at the heart of his performance, as all too often noise artists hide behind their various technologies. A complete variety, commitment, and intensity in his work." N.Raven.

For ten years, he has been conducting a free radio program, "A Propos de Minos", a weekly open stage, aired every Monday -09pm to 11pm- live from wherever WN may be.
With APDM, you embarks on a sonic trip with unknown destination, WN goes places, meets people, records conversations, kitchen rumours, meteorological agitprop, early 21st century remnants of lost civilisations, electronic pampering and modern day chansons. When his Visiting friends they come together at some place and then they use instruments and non-instruments to create sound. Not a culinary or panoramic ride through Europe but a whole different approach to the emotions and energy and expressions of every day life that can be found at a given place.
Since 2014, a redux form of APDM is aired from Berlin on Radio On.

He runs in 2010 his own label ROHS Prod, not fixed on any one genre, style or approach of experimental music.

Since 2012, he is also curated "die destruktion" an event oriented on the possibility to destroy, un-construct, exterminate, eradicate, smashed, shattered, wracked something in an acoustic way or amplified. During this moment artits will define their perceptions of destruction through music or performance. The amplified sound of the auto-destructive process can be an integral part of the total conception.

Since 2013, in collaboration with Gregory Henrion, the "Bruitisme" Festival is organized where it can be. Born at the Totem (fr-maxéville), he moved last years to the MS-Stubnitz (de-hamburg), Ground Zero (fr-lyon), Barlok (be-brussel), La Gueule Noire (fr-saint-etienne), L'Embobineuse (fr-marseille), Le LAC (ch-chaux-de-fonds), Les Ateliers De Bitche (fr-nantes), Le Void (fr-bordeaux).

In 2017 At ENSA, National Art School and Design of Nancy, he developed a three days workshop about larsen / feedback audio and video.

WN also works with theater companies has an actor, or video designer (lumino dynamics, mapping...), or has an animator for the Instrumentarium of Recycled Object called "L'Antre Sonore".
