STEIM Instrument Lab #3
The Instrument Lab is a collaborative residency and workshop program focusing on the building of new instruments and instrumental practices. Artists who apply and are accepted will undertake a week-long group residency to develop and contextualize new works and works in progress, facilitated through a program of hands-on workshops, staff-led discussions, and group mentoring sessions. Residents will have access to studio and workshop spaces, as well as have access to the Soundbunker, a workspace housing a collection of older analog sound gear. At the end of the residency STEIM will organize a performance evening for participants to show proof of concept of their work and receive public feedback.
The workshop part of the program varies depending on the backgrounds of the participants. In general, one can expect the workshop sessions to provide a crash-course in instrument design and philosophy, STEIM software, physical interfaces, and the performance considerations of live electronic music. The workshop program is heaviest during the first few days so as to give ample time for project work.
Aside from the residency itself, many past residents have found the Instrument Lab a wonderful way to make a first visit to STEIM. While here you will have the opportunity to discuss potential future collaborations and to become a part of the international network of artists and musicians that STEIM supports.
The Instrument Lab begins at 11:00am on Tuesday, 3 April and lasts until the program ending concert in the evening on Tuesday, 10 April. We will assume that those staying in the guesthouse will check in on monday 2 April and check out wednesday 11 April.
To apply please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your motivation accompanied by your resumé, bio and links to audio/visual materials online.
