Music Research Series: Nicolas Collins. 15 January 2015

Nicolas Collins (presented by the Unit for Sound Practice Research) gives this evenings paper on his recent work and research, illustrated with audio and video clips.

On Thursday, Nicholas Collins, author of 'Handmade Electronic Music: The Art of Hardware Hacking' (Routledge), will be coming to Goldsmiths for a very special day of events.

Following his workshop on Handmade Electronic Music projects Radio Cracklebox and Victorian Oscillator taking place at 13:00 (venue tba), Nicholas will be discussing his recent work and research as part of the Music Research Series at 17:00 in RHB308. This is a great opportunity to hear about Nicholas' own practice and research. This event will be presented by the Unit for Sound Practice Research.

Please note that there is also an EAVI concert that night at 8PM at the Amersham Arms, with an amazing line-up.

Born and raised in New York City, Nicolas Collins lived in Amsterdam and Berlin in the 1990s before joining the Department of Sound at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. An early adopter of microcomputers for live performance, Collins also makes use of electronic circuitry, conventional acoustic instruments, and hybrid electro-acoustic instruments. He is editor in-chief of the Leonardo Music Journal, and his book, Handmade Electronic Music – The Art of Hardware Hacking (Routledge), has influenced emerging electronic music worldwide. Collins has the dubious distinction of having played at both CBGB and the Concertgebouw.

All welcome, free public event
