STEIM 2011 Documentation

For two weeks in October, four CalArts students went to Amsterdam to be composers in residence at STEIM. The residency was a workshop in hardware hacking, digital music programming, composition, and performance. At the end of the two weeks, there was a performance featuring hardware controllers, computer processing, and improvisation. The students involved were Jinku Kim, Heather Lockie, MaryClare Brzytwa, and myself, Max Foreman.
