Nick Storring is a young, multi-faceted musician whose interests lie both in and outside of the world of improvisational music.
Nick's main focus as an improvising musician is his project with drummer Brandon Valdivia and guitarist/ saxophonist Colin Fisher, I HAVE EATEN THE CITY, in which he plays cello, keyboards and various small instruments through live computer processing. The group's approach, which draws variously from spiritual free-jazz , abstract electronica, contemporary classical, avant-rock, noise, ambient, musique concrete and non-Western Musics, has permitted them to play a variety of audiences in and around the Toronto area, where they are based. The group served as the backing group for Damo Suzuki in 2005 on one of his Canadian dates, and played with Tzadik artist Toby Driver (of avant-metal group Kayo Dot) on his 2006 tour in Canada.
Storring has also performed in many other improvisational contexts with musicians including Paul Dutton, Jean Martin, Frank Gratkowski, Michael Keith, Ken Aldcroft, Christine Duncan, Lori Freedman, Anne Bourne and Matthew Brubeck.
Apart from his interest in improvisational music, Storring is very active as an electroacoustic composer, as well as composing for theatre and interdisciplinary artwork. His electronic music has appeared at the Open Ears Festival of Music and Sound in 2003, and at 20th Anniversary of the Maison de Culture Notre-Dame De Grace in Montreal.
