STEIM, the Amsterdam-based music laboratory of experiments in electronic sound and instruments, lands in New Amsterdam! For 40 years now, STEIM (Studio of Electro-Instrumental Music) has fostered international collaborations between composers, musicians, engineers, installation artists, DJs and VJs and has been a breeding ground for the creation of high- and low-tech musical tools for live performance.
For this performance, STEIM’s Artistic Director, Takuro Mizuta Lippit, has assembled a lineup of groundbreaking international artists from STEIM’s roster, including:
• Yutaka Makino (Japan/Germany): A composer and technical wizard who has pioneered the blending of music, sculpture and architecture
• ABATTOIR: A duo comprised of Audrey Chen (U.S.)—vocalist, cellist and analog electronics musician/composer and Robert van Heumen (Netherlands)—a composer and tinkerer equally at home with a keyboard or a joystick
• A collaboration between digital media composer Yannis Kyriakides (Netherlands) and guitarist Andy Moor (U.K./ Netherlands) of the legendary Dutch punk band The Ex
• dj sniff (Japan/Netherlands), a.k.a. Takuro Mizuta Lippit—turntable musician and Artistic Director of STEIM
