Orientation workshop #108 featuring artist talks by Neal Spowage, Danny de Graan, and Robert van Heumen

Original annoucement:

Orientation 108 Attendees


This Orientation workshop was attended by: Jon He Jingyin, Tara Pattenden, Kyle Evans, and Michael Edward Edgerton (left to right).


STEIM Orientation workshops are held roughly once every two months. These workshops are ment as an introduction into the STEIM way of working, and form an ideal first contact between artists and STEIM. Participants are selected to study and explore the possible technical and artistic means available at STEIM for a potential future project (for example, a compositional work or a personal electronic instrument). This will be achieved partly through lectures by the STEIM staff, partly through collaboration between the participants, and partly through (informal) contact with the STEIM staff regarding specific requirements and wishes of each participant. The orientation will take place in a classroom setting, in STEIM`s studio 3.

There are 4 places available that include a room in our guesthouse. Workstations will be available with the STEIM software and some additonal controllers, ment for participants from abroad. 4 additional places are available to local artists or people that arrange their own lodging, for those who wish to attend the lectures held that week. To apply for participation in an Orientation workshop you can send an email to with your motivation accompanied by your resumé, bio and links to audio/visual materials online.
