Il White Cube di Bermondsey a Londra ha ospitato sabato scorso una rara performance di Nicolas Collins, negli ultimi anni sempre più impegnato sul fronte dell'insegnamento e della divulgazione del know-how elettronico applicato a strumenti usati o di basso costo. Un esercizio di equilibrio tra strumenti tattili, oscillatori, circuiti integrati e feedback giocato con l'impiego di bicchieri brocche e calici presi in prestito dalle installazioni della personale di Christian Marclay.

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. As well as being an early adopter of micro computers for live performance, Collins also uses electronic circuitry, conventional acoustic instruments and hybrid electro acoustic instruments. Collins is the editor in chief of the Leonardo Music Journal as well as the author of Handmade Electronic Music-The Art of Hardware Hacking, published by Routledge, which has influenced emerging electronic music worldwide.
