PERFORMANCE: STEIM presents: Peter Edwards & Sybren Danz, 22 May
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.
Edwards uses handmade analogue sound and light synthesizers to create sonic, visual and physical music. Danz has restored STEIM’s Black Box Modular synthesis system which will feature heavily in his performance.
Modular synthesizers have been around for decades and present 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. external link
