Location: STEIM Concert Space, Utrechtsedwarsstraat 134, Amsterdam
has a diverse background in physics, sound and sensor technologies, and has worked in the field of interactive sound art making installations and performances (dance/music). In her artistic work she is interested in the realtime components of the work, in that nothing is precomposed as such, but rather the sonic or light output depends on realtime interactions, be it of the performer, or of the audience.
is a solo music-theatre work where I try to explore the relationship between theatrical gesture and musical instrument, between the body and the sonic world.
is the first performance version where the link between physical and sonic gesture is explored during a live performance, combining movement of the body and live coding.
Tijs Ham (aka Tapage)
is a musician and sound artist with a background in visual arts, a member of the Soundlings collective and founder of the recordlabel Tapeface. Musically, anything is possible, which is reflected by the broad sonic range of his output. Tapage has released several full length albums on the Chicago based recordlabel Tympanik Audio.
is a combination of controllable algorithmic Supercollider code producing rhythms which are fed to a feedback mixer for added distortion. The algorhitms are also send to a text based visual engine providing ultra sync abstract ‘words’ to accompany the sound.
is a UK based sound and visual artist, whose interests lie in a darker side of the arts. Luke experiments with brooding cinematic themes, Found sounds and white noise whilst using game and midi controllers to control both sonic and visual elements of his compositions.
Adam Campbell & Ewa Justka
Adam Campbell is a musician and sound designer from Glasgow, Scotland, currently doing an internship in physical computing at STEIM Amsterdam. His work is focused on collaboration and collective activity, mainly through improvised music. His own practice is based around using analog modular and computer synthesis techniques in live performance. He has performed his work across Europe and North America at venues and festivals such as Cafe Oto, Cultures Electoni[k] and Goldsmiths University.
Ewa Justka is a polish electronic artist based in London. She currently studies BA Sound Arts & Design at LCC and is doing an internship in physical computing at STEIM, Amsterdam. In her artistic work Ewa attempts to explore the concept of physicality of objects through creation of an instant interactions between them. She has performed at festivals such as Beam Festival, Network Music Festival, Moving Forest, Supernormal.
Over the past few years STEIM’s Sybren Danz has blown new life into the 1970′s vintage ‘Blackbox’ modular synthesizer by restoring three of the four existing systems to their former glory. Today, Sybren Danz will take the restored synths out of the STEIM Sound Bunker to perform with them on a proper soundsystem.
