Early life

Bergen was born in Melbourne, Australia.[1]

Music


Bergen cites the 1970s industrial sounds and ideology of Throbbing Gristle and Cabaret Voltaire as significant influences for his work as Little Nobody: "Since about 15 years ago, when I first heard their album The Voice of America.[2] In 1998, he released his first full-length Little Nobody album: Pop Tart.

Writing

In a March 2014 interview, Bergen stated that "writing fiction, especially via novels, remains the overall joy" in his creative life.[3]

Other work

Bergen says he has worked on translating and adapting the scripts for feature films.[1] In March 2014, Bergen said that he would be enthused by an offer to write for film or television: "as a journalist I write about movies and anime — so it would be a logical step."[3]
