Nick Storring

Nick Storring is a Toronto-based composer with a wide palette of interests, ranging from skewed pop to electroacoustics, and from chamber music to various forms of cross-cultural collaboration.

Recent winner of the Canadian Music Centre's Toronto Emerging Composer Award, he also placed first in the 2008 Jeux de Temps/ Times Play Competition for young Canadian electroacoustic composers with the first section of his broken violin-derived work Artifacts. Eager to collaborate with artists in various media, his work has recently been performed by the Esprit Orchestra, the Madawaska String Quartet, and Quatuor Bozzini. Interactive piece Tentacles, featuring Storring's music and sound design, was featured at MoMA in New York City this summer and fall as part of their Talk To Me exhibit.

He is member of various bands: Picastro, Mexican son jarocho group Café Con Pan, I Have Eaten The City, and experimental cello duo the Knot, and creates experimental pop-dance music under the alias Piège. His debut album of abstract electronic works, Rife was released this past September on UK imprint Entr'acte.
