Profile:
The Norman Conquest [TNC] (b. 1980, Tulsa, OK) is a composer, performer, and improviser of music influenced by the art of sound engineering. Feedback is a constant source of musical, psychological, and philosophical inspiration for TNC.

TNC spent his formative years in rural Kentucky exploring 4-track recording as a vehicle for his songs and sonic experiments. He honed his recording abilities at Middle Tennessee State University, from where he received his B.S. in 2003. TNC then received his M.F.A. from Mills College in 2006.

TNC performs as a sound manipulator and vocalist in Cosa Brava (with Fred Frith, Zeena Parkins, Carla Kihlstedt, & Matthias Bossi), Nuclear Times (with Quentin Sirjacq & Antoine Berthiaume), Dokuro (with Agnes Szelag), and in the post-metal band The Atomic Bomb Audition.
