Circuit Taco Fiesta
Dinner and open podium for electronic musicians w/LoVid & Casperelectronics
This sunday evening STEIM will be hosting a casual evening of food and performances. Coming off the excitement of LoVid's skin-voltage instrument workshop, we'll be having an open podium for workshop participants to plug in and perform short sets with their new instruments. The podium is also open to any electronic musicians who want to come by and plug in.
Around 18h we'll be serving a burrito bar with fresh margaritas!
If you'd like to eat or play please make a reservation by email to knock [AT] steim [DOT] nl no later than 1pm. Food is by donation of €5.
After the open podium we'll be having performances from analog audio-visual artists LoVid and hacker-instrument builder Pete Edwards (Casperelectronics). Hope to see you there!
Also feel free to bring cerveza, nachos, salsa, or whatever Mexican snacks you'd like to contribute to the fiesta.

ARTIST BIOS //
LoVid is an interdisciplinary artist duo composed of Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus. Their work includes live video installations, sculptures, digital prints, patchworks, media projects, performances, and video recordings. LoVid combines many opposing elements in their work, contrasting hard electronics with soft patchworks, analog and digital, or handmade and machine produced objects. This multidirectional approach is also reflected in the content of their work: romantic and aggressive, wireless and wire-full. LoVid are interested in the ways in which the human body and mind observe, process, and respond to both natural and technological environments, and in the preservation of data, signals, and memory.
Peter Edwards (Casperelectronics) is an American artist, musician, and teacher. He has been exploring the field of circuit bending and musical electronics since 2000 through his business Casperelectronics. He performs regularly under the same name.
Edwards has performed, taught workshops and spoken on the topic of circuit bending and creative electronics at Universities across the US and at new media festivals around the world including The Piksel Festival (Bergen, Norway), Mal Au Pixel (Paris, France) The OFFF Festival (Paris, France), Sequences Festival (Reykjavik, Iceland) and Bent Festival (New York & LA, USA).
