Short overview by students about their machine project state.
New York born and raised, Nicolas Collins (www.nicolascollins.com) spent most of the 1990s in Europe, where he was Visiting Artistic Director of Stichting STEIM (Amsterdam), and a DAAD composer-in-residence in Berlin. An early adopter of microcomputers for live performance, Collins also makes use of homemade electronic circuitry and conventional acoustic instruments. He is editor-in-chief of the Leonardo Music Journal, and a Professor in the Department of Sound at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His book, Handmade Electronic Music – The Art of Hardware Hacking (Routledge), has influenced emerging electronic music worldwide. Collins’ indecisive career trajectory is reflected in his having played at both CBGB and the Concertgebouw.
A great article about what happens to human skill/emergency situations with the coming age of automation. Interesting solutions offered at the end. (thx to Pierre Depaz, Lecturer of Interactive Media, NYUAD)
