........................................

The STEIM@40! was a celebration of STEIMs 40 year history through a diverse program of events. We would like to conclude this series by looking into new themes.

"Patterns & pleasure" — From once being an act of banging on things, rhythm has evolved into something that you carefully program through sequencer based instruments. Groove becomes an interesting space where complexity and intuition intersect. So how can we imagine new tools and ways to perform this new groove? How can we bang, sculpt and structure in real-time?
........................................

N.B. The routines obtained here were partly inspired -- in their content and esthetic -- by turntablists Qbert and D-styles . Although nothing can rival real vinyl manipulation by experts, a personal adaptation of these techniques on Handsonic makes imagine new ways in real time electronics.

Material used in this video:
- Handsonic (Roland HPD 15)
- Moog Bass Murf (MF-105b)
- Lo-Fi (LF7)
