Residence: Huddersfield, UK
Originally from Ottawa, Colin Frank experiments with sound, electronics, sculpture, theatre and percussion, investigating excess, bodily extremes, unpredictable instruments and rich raw noises. He has worked with the Noisebringers, TAK Ensemble, AndPlay, Red Note, Gods Entertainment, Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble, and is a founding member of the DriftEnsemble and Brutalust. He has presented in the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Berlin’s CTM festival, the Darmstadt Internationale Ferienkurse für Neue Musik, Electric Springs, SoundThought, Beast Feast and PAS Quebec Days, amongst others. Colin’s installations often involve audience interactivity and have been exhibited at Salem Art Works and Dai Hall. His PhD research at the University of Huddersfield considers how unconventional instruments and objects act and influence his creative process. He studied performance and composition at McGill University and sound at the Institute of Sonology. He has taught improvisation at the Waterloo Region Contemporary Music Festival and at Huddersfield University.
