Nihilore originally started out in 2009 as a side project for me (James Opie) to practice my music production skills and write and record music i was unable to with the bands i was playing with at the time. Eventually I decided to focus on Nihilore as my sole musical pursuit and spent 2011 & 2012 recording and releasing Nihilore albums.
I spent 2012 to 2015 completing my Bachelor of Music degree from the Australian Institute of Music in Sydney. I Majored in Composition and Music Production.
After getting my degree i decided to release everything I had recorded as Nihilore for anybody to use freely, and then split my attention between new Nihilore releases and writing music commercially for Films and Video Games.
