Personal profile


Adam Collis received a BSc.(Hons) in Music and Physics and an MA in Digital Music Technology from the University of Keele but has subsequently spent much of his professional life in South-East Asia, initially working as a software engineer writing visual-control software and subsequently as a lecturer in music and music technology. In addition, he is a qualified Pro Tools operator, having obtained certification at Avid, Tokyo, and has worked with Digidesign in delivering Pro Tools courses for education and broadcast institutions in the region

His creative output has frequently involved inter-disciplinary collaborations, working with visual artists and dance companies such as Arts Fission and Ecnad. He composed for and performed with the Lasalle Gamelan ensemble at the ‘Beat! International’ Festival, New Zealand and has also performed at the International Computer Music Conference. He has also had works commisioned by the Singapore Photographic Society and the Singapore International Film Festival

Vision Statement

My research interests centre around the use of noise as a resource in music composition and sound art, especially with reference to contemporary practitioners such as Yasunao Tone, Ryoji Ikeda and Carsten Nicolai. Through this research and practice, I am developing a theoretical and conceptual framework to provide a basis for the creative application of noise in contemporary practice.
