Singer Songwriter from The Netherlands, working as Frank Nicolas from The Netherlands..

I have an MSc. in Computer Science, but I abandoned academia to pursue a career in music.

I wrote an aleatoric composition engine that could produce reasonable listenable music on a FLEX-based synthesizer with three voices. I based the synthesizer on the original Nintendo music chip. After finishing my thesis on that, I realized that telling a computer how to make music wasn't as fulfilling as letting your own soul pour out into something.
