Luke Nickel
Luke Nickel (b. 1988) is an award-winning Canadian composer, virtual roller coaster designer and independent researcher currently living in Bristol, UK. Nickel’s work takes the form of experimental music compositions, videos and impossible virtual roller coasters. His work knots together themes of memory, transcription, translation, queer identity and gravity. He has collaborated with internationally-established soloists and chamber ensembles such as Mira Benjamin, Heather Roche, Juliet Fraser, Quatuor Bozzini, and EXAUDI, and has worked with organisations such as Arnolfini, Sound Forms, and the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. About his work, scholar Jennie Gottschalk writes that “there is an unusual quality of rawness” (Experimental Music Since 1970). In addition to his artistic work, Nickel has received a Ph.D from Bath Spa University and actively publishes on topics such as orally-transmitted experimental music, Éliane Radigue and roller coasters.
