I'm having some trouble getting my Quicktime clips to play back in Firefox, so I've embedded YouTube versions as well (the Quicktime versions seem slightly higher quality, in case you are using Safari).

Tall Poppies (2009)
Demonstration of two channels of a three-channel continuous-loop multi-screen video installation. Contact mikes on the stems of sparklers pick up the whoosh of the burning magnesium and the subsequent ping and pop of the wire cores as they cool. All sounds are produced by the sparklers, and are not processed in any way. Videography by Tommy Heffron.

In Memoriam Michel Waisvisz (2009)
Four homemade oscillators are modulated by the flickering flame of a candle. In memory of Michel Waisvisz (1949 -- 2008), guiding spirit of STEIM. Videography by Tommy Heffron.

When John Henry Was A Little Baby (1996/2008)
A model train track runs across the floor, with a steel wire stretched above it. The engine has a thin bolt attached across its pantograph. The wire runs at a slight diagonal to the track. As the train travels the wire slips from one groove in the bolt to the next, plucking the wire like a long guitar string. The sound is picked up and heard through a small amplifier. The train reverses automatically at each end of the track. A motion detector turns on the installation when people approach. Documentation of an installation at Arts LeHavre 08 Biennale d'Arte Contemporain, Musée Malraux, Le Havre, France, 2008.
Salvage (Guiyu Blues) (2008)
Seven players attempt to re-animate deceased and discarded electronic circuitry (cell phones, computer motherboards, fax machines, etc), using test probes to make connections between a simple homemade circuit and the electronic corpse; feedback between my circuit and the components on the dead board produce complex patterns of oscillation, that change with the slightest movement of the probes. The seventh performer "conducts" by periodically signaling the others to try to freeze the current sound texture by holding their hands as still as possible. Performance by students from Tama Art School, ICC Tokyo, March 2008.
Workshop in Hardware Hacking at the École Supérieure d'Art d'Aix (2007)
Public presentation at the end of my workshop at the École Supérieure d'Art d'Aix-en-Provence, France, fall 2007. Video by Peter Sinclair.
Daguerreotypes (2006)
A dozen small LCD screens, removed from cheap handheld games, are hung along the walls of a darkened room. Reanimated with homemade circuits, illuminated with tiny green lights, they cast diminutive, pixilated shadow plays. The remainders from the eviscerated toys are dumped in the corner and set to play. The signals that normally control the graphics are connected to speakers, producing patterns of drones that shake the scrap filling the speaker cones. Documentation of an installation in the Sonambiente Festival, in the former Polish Embassy on Unter den Linden, Berlin, Germany, 2006.

Nicolas Collins: Bending All The Rules (2006)
Interview by Molly Sheridan for New Music Box (on-line journal of The American Music Center), July 2006.
Truth In Clouds (1999)
An installation/chamber opera based on seance culture. The audience moves an inverted glass across a table; its movement controls the distribution of sounds through speakers hidden in the set, and directs the instrumentalists to perform specific variations on four centuries of musical scores. Documentation of installation at Podewil, with performances by members of Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin.
Die Schatten (1996)
Work for two hacked CD players skipping through Schubert, accompanied by the Netherlands Wind Ensemble for their New Year's Day Concert in the Concertgebauw, Amsterdam, 1997. Live video processing by Tom Demeyer. Broadcast live on VPRO television.
Tobabo Fonio (1986)
The first piece for my "trombone-propelled electronics" -- a homemade DSP system controlled by, and playing back through, an old trombone. Using Cusqueña brass band music by Primavera de Tauca. Video by Stella Varveris at Experimental Intermedia Foundation, NYC, 1989.
Devil's Music (1985)
In Devil's Music fragments of radio broadcasts are digitally sampled, looped, re-triggered and occasionally reversed or de-tuned. All material is taken from FM and AM transmissions occurring at the time of the performance. The performer plays off of certain musical ground-rules intrinsic to the sampling system (which consists of three modified inexpensive effect devices) to develop the quirky rhythmic interplay that characterizes the piece. Video excerpt of a performance at Southern Danceworks, Birmingham, Alabama, December 1987, camerawork by Dorah Funmilayo Rosen.
