Philippe Neau first started releasing music, including on Mahorka, under his solo "nobodisoundz" project that was born in 2008 (with a reference to the character of "Nobody" in "Dead Man", a Jim Jarmusch film). In the recent years he has started putting out music, solo and collaborations, more exclusively under his real name.

"I first started this sound-making project by cobbling together music samples, sounds, field recordings and the results of my fiddling with some software. These sounds completed my works and added an atmosphere within and around my paintings, subsequent installations and videos.

With time, these sounds have gained a more and more important place and have become self-sufficient, no longer requiring any other medium. I look for dense, heavy, noisy, squeaky, tense and quiet atmospheres, which have to be both dark and bright at the same time."
