iii, an emerging collective of young media instrumentalists based primarily in the Hague, present an afternoon and evening event investigating the role of instrument and media design as a performative practice. Self-made media, and instrumental media as performance practice has a long and unique history in the Netherlands. This event intends to understand how performing artists today, with what seems like an ever-increasing fluency, combine histories and technologies to re-negotiate relationships within the musical, technological, perceptual, and ritual through live performance and improvisation.
This program concludes a four-day collective residency at STEIM by iii, and includes an afternoon panel discussion on the role of DIY media in cultural entrepreneurship moderated by Justin Bennet. Later in the evening will be a concert program featuring artists from the initiative. Entry to both events is free.
