During their artist-in-residency they will build new instruments, record new material and perform in different cities ending with a concert at SMART PROJECT SPACE on Thursday, November 17th. Since 2010, STEIM and LIG Art Foundation have established an international network to exchange and support adventurous musicians and sound artists.

Wave Field Synthesis and Realtime Applications




Presentations by Arthur Sauer & Miguel Negrão of Game of Life Foundation

 

"Wave Field Synthesis (WFS) is a sound production technology designed specifically for spatial audio rendering. Virtual acoustic environments are simulated and synthesized using large numbers of loudspeakers. The innovation of this technology is that sound can appear to emanate from desired virtual starting points, and then move through space in many possible defined spatial pathways."

15 March - 22 March 2011 | Orientation

Orientation workshop #109 featuring artist talks by Yolande Harris, Tobias Klein, and Robert van Heumen




This Orientation workshop was attended by: Rodrigo Constanzo, Alfred Marseille, Anabel Lopez, Albena Baeva, and Steve Bates (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.
