STEIM Exchange


Since 2007, the Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music (STEIM) in Amsterdam and CalArts’ Experimental Sound Practices (ESP) program have participated in an exchange program in which a group of CalArts graduate music students work intensively on projects at the STEIM studios in Holland.

STEIM is one of the leading experimental music centers in Europe and has been for decades. STEIM is the only independent live electronic music center in the world that is dedicated exclusively to the performing arts. CalArts’ ESP program is thrilled to be partnered with such an innovative institution.

Generally, the two-week residency and workshop culminates in a concert featuring the students’ work.
