For this edition Brain Riordan will perform after a 2 week residency here at STEIM, he will be collaborating with local musicians during his performance.
We have also invited Marloes van Son to showcase her sound art.


Brian Riordan is a composer, performer, improviser, producer, and sound artist originally from Chicago, IL. He is currently an Andrew W. Mellon Fellow and a PhD candidate in Music Composition and Theory at University of Pittsburgh, where he pursues interests in delay-based performance, real-time digital signal processing, and laptop performance aesthetics.

Riordan’s ‘Connector’ set features his use of customized software, designed to manipulate and exchange the live sounds of local musicians with whom he enters into an improvisational sonic dialogue. He will be performing together with Laura Nygren, Sarah Claman, Pau Sola, Maya Felixbrodt and Albert Manders.




Marloes van Son builds systems, installations and instruments. The electromechanical objects that she develops explore natural phenomena and everyday appliances. By repurposing ordinary objects she aims to create unusual, yet familiar experiences. Many of her works start from a visual component, but sound is always an integral part of the eventual piece.

Her current devices-project explores experimental sound generators, interface design, artistic technical documentation and scores for alternative instruments. She regularly performs custom compositions and invites the audience to test and build her designs during workshops.

She graduated in 2017 from the Visual Culture and Contemporary Art programme (ViCCA MA, Aalto University, Helsinki, FI) after completing her BA at the ArtScience Interfaculty (BA, KABK, The Hague, NL).


Sound Art Hallway

At STEIM we host a permanent Sound Art gallery. The works that are presented here don’t make any sound by itself. Therefor the public must explore and interact with the works. You are very welcome to do so before-, during the intermission and after the concert.
We have a changing collection.
