'Merlin Nova is sound, song and movement. Clear-cut. Quick fix. Immediate. Set scene sound. Landscape, temperature and feeling. Here with you, together.'

Merlin Nova's live performance evolved out of her weekly radio show Nova Waves, which broadcasted from Subcity Radio, Glasgow. On the show Nova would create music, soundscapes and use sound effects to build imagined worlds. It was not until she was asked to DJ at Subcity’s 20th Birthday Exhibition ‘pure radio sex’, that she chose to combine her own soundscapes, poetry and song thus beginning the assemblage of her live music.
