Please join us for a special concert featuring a rare set of improvisations with Jon Rose, Frances-Marie Uitti and Joel Ryan.
Jon first mixed improvised violin with live digital technology in Australia back in the early 1980s through the use of the world’s first sampler – the pre-MIDI Fairlight CMI. Since 1985 he has been a regular visitor to Steim where his unique bow powered Hyperstring project has undergone many transformations.
Frances Marie is known world wide for her pioneering use of two bows on the cello. She has had more solo pieces written for her than there are canals in Amsterdam – possibly premiering more new music than any other string player. She is a virtuoso for all seasons.
Joel is our third pioneer for the evening, a key innovator in the application of digital signal processing to acoustic instruments. He has been active at STEIM since 1984 and has influenced, advised, and inspired two generations of musicians through his job at the Sonology department at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague.
For this concert of stringology, Jon and Frances will limit themselves to the acoustic instrument, leaving all the digital transformation to Joel.
We are also very happy to have up and coming composer Wouter Snoei performing his quadraphonic live electronics piece. Wouter is among the emerging new generation of musicians educated in the Hague, for whom low level programming tools like Supercollider and custom controllers are not only the norm, but also essential to the realization of their work. His recent work includes compositions specifically for Wave Field Synthesis systems.
This concert series is partly funded by Gemeente Amsterdam.
