Nicholas Virgo is a composer based in Glasgow. He has composed with electronic media since the days when tape was still chopped up, manually with razor blades and ‘mixing’ involved cueing/choreographing the playback of multiple tape-recorders . In the early 1980s, he was an original member of BEAST, the renowned electronic music diffusion and performance group. Subsequently, he has taught music in a variety of contexts and worked as a freelance composer. Since moving to Scotland in 2003, he has worked with InvisblE ARts and now with Edit-Point.
