What is a Nick Williams?


I am a PhD candidate at The International Centre For Music Studies (ICMuS), Newcastle University. My research is concerned with electronic music in improvisation and cross-disciplinary performance. Current research themes include the politics of improvisation, emergence, and strategies for negotiating the dissonance and harmony that arises from the collision of disparate disciplinary vocabularies.

I use reel-to-reel tape recorders, Max/MSP, cassette recorders, and various zero input devices to create improvised electronic music. Some of the noises I make can be heard here.

I look forward to meeting everyone next week.
