Physicality in electronic music has always been one of the central themes at
STEIM, but not every musician takes a gestural or bodily approach to
performing their music. Physicality of the sound, the space and the location
are equally important, especially for laptop musicians and sound artists.
For our next concert we have invited three typically "non-gestural" artists
to work in our studios and prepare for this performance. We wanted to create
a critical platform for laptop musicians as well where new forms of
presentation and performances can be explored. For each of these invited
artists, their instrument extends beyond the actual device that they are
touching by incorporating the speaker, field recordings and navigational
data as essential elements of the performance. We hope to see you at our
next event to witness these extended techniques in live laptop music.
Composer, laptop musician, improviser. Active in the experimental fields of
electronic music, soundart, sonic webart, improvisation and contemporary

Heribert Friedl lives in Vienna, and studied sculpture at the University
of Applied Arts there. In his exhibitions he has been working with
scents and its non visual phenomenons - sometimes in combination with
sounds. He has had exhibitions, soundperformances and projects in cities of
Hungary, Germany, England, Italy, USA, Cuba and Austria.
After more mp3-releases and albums on labels trente oiseaux and and/OAR he
founded his label nonvisualobjects with Raphael Moser in 2005. The
label releases works by such renowned minimalist artists as Steve Roden,
Richard Chartier, Roel Meelkop, Bernhard Günter, among others.
Understanding the relations between sound, image and space through
technologies of communication and navigation, has been the central focus of
Yolande's work over the last ten years. She explores the intermediary role
of the score, both as practical and conceptual tool, and as an open
imaginary situation for communication. Her Score Spaces project employs a
spatial approach to composition and has resulted in numerous audio-visual
performances and installations, including the Meta-Orchestra, theoretical
texts, such as Inside Out Instrument, and workshops for composers, sound
artists, architects and designers. Her most recent works, Taking Soundings
and Sun Run Sun, employ intuitive and scientific modes of knowing and join
ancient and contemporary navigation and orientation techniques from sextants
to GPS, to explore our apparently changing relation to land and sea
environments in the age of satellite and mobile technologies.
Yolande has a degree in music from Dartington College of Arts and a Master
of Philosophy from the University of Cambridge in architecture and the
moving image. She has been resident researcher at the Jan van Eyck Academy
in Maastricht, artistic fellow at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne and
artist in residence at STEIM and the Netherlands Institute for Media Arts in
Amsterdam. She has taught interaction design at the Technical University of
Eindhoven, is guest lecturer at the Rietveld Academy Design Lab, and
lectures on her work internationally. Her writings have been published in
the Contemporary Music Review and Journal of Organised Sound.
This concert series is funded by Gemeente Amsterdam.
