Nicolas Collins makes his first UK concert appearance since 2004’s epic Feedback: Order from Noise tour. He performs three typically extraordinary works which explore draw on a lifetime of building radical new electronic instruments. Since 1997 Collins has been editor-in-chief of the Leonardo Music Journal, and since 1999 a Professor in the Department of Sound at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The second edition of his acclaimed book, Handmade Electronic Music – The Art of Hardware Hacking, was published by Routledge in 2009. http://www.nicolascollins.com
Working with experimental interfaces, video projection, acoustic devices, biofeedback and destabilised equipment responsive to touch, Oscillatorial Binnage create raucous and compelling compositions based on an exploration of the resonant frequencies of found objects.
The Resonance Radio Orchestra is a floating pool of musicians, actors and technicians based around the award-winning radio station Resonance104.4fm. With an ever-changing, fluid line-up and an aesthetic informed by the imp of the perverse, the ensemble is concerned above all with the development of radio art. Tonight the Orchestra presents a new radiophonic sketch based on surreptitious recordings.
Paul B. Davis works in the duo The Potions with DJ LeDeuce (Thrill Jockey), lectures in Fine Art at Goldsmiths and produces beats for St. Louis rapper Wonton. He is the only DJ to ever get thrown off stage at the Technics/DMC World DJ Championships.
As a reminder Nic wrote the excellent ‘Handmade Electronic Music’ book below.
