Videographer/Researcher

University of Guelph

Nicholas Loess is a PhD student in the School of English and Theatre Studies at the University of Guelph. He lives in Guelph with his partner Rosa and animal co-creators Emilia and Peanut. His current research is exploring the creative linkages between experimental film and improvisation. His creative work has been critically and artistically influenced by Trinh Minh-Ha, Chris Marker, Dziga Vertov, and Gilles Deleuze.

So one of the things that improvisation has come to mean in the context of highly technological performance is that improvisation is the last claim to the legitimate presence of a human in the performance of music.
