STEIM presents at the DEAF festival:
Peter Edwards & Sybren Danz
The old and the new collide as STEIM presents an analogue fueled line-up with Peter Edwards and Sybren Danz for this year’s DEAF festival.
The old and the new collide as STEIM presents an analog fueled line-up for this years DEAF festival. Modular synthesizers have been around for decades as a symbol for the times when electronic music was considered the music for sonic scientists. This is only part of the story though, because the modular approach is still very much alive and kicking! The irresistible sounds and high levels of flexible control over the sounds appeal to a whole new generation of artists.
Peter Edwards (US) is an American artist and musician living in Holland. For this performance he uses hand made analog sound and light synthesizers to create sonic, visual and physical music.
Sybren Danz (NL) has been involved with music and sound for over two decades and became a member of the STEIM team in 2011, where he restored the Black Box modular synthesis system, built in the seventies.
Inspired by the format he is currently developing a custom system which will feature heavily in his performance.
