Part 1:To end the workshop on sound poetry and 
synthetic speech, OKNO organises live performances of the human/machine 
sound poetry projects developed during this experimental media 
Part 2: a live performance of 2 STEIM-members: Michel 
Waisvisz and Jan st. Werner.

Both performance take place at nadine 
vzw -- herdersstraat 30 rue du berger-- 1050 brussels at 8pm.

Waisvisz is a composer/performer of live electronic music, who has 
developed new ways to achieve physical touch with electronic music 
instruments. Sometimes this is done by literally touching the 
electricity inside the instruments and thereby becoming a thinking 
component of the machine.
He was amongst the first play with 
synthesizers on stage and very early developed and performed using 
gestural controllers. He is also the inventor of the CrackleBox, The 
Web and The Hands and other instruments based on touch interaction. 
Together with Frank BaldE9 he has designed live performance software 
like LiSa and JunXion.
He leads the Steim foundation in Amsterdam 
where performance artists from music, theatre, dance and new media art 
work to develop their personal electronic instruments.

Jan st. 
Werner is the new artistic director of Steim, the institute for 
electronic music, interface and software development in Amsterdam. In 
1993 he started with Andi Toma the German electronica-collective Mouse 
on Mars. This post-techno genre-bending duo has been refining its sound 
into an unlikely and likable amalgam of electronic and organic music. 
Many will claim their music already was so revolutionary and pioneering 
back in 1994, that it could well have been written today without 
sounding the slightest bit dated whatsoever.
Their unique way of 
creating music demonstrates that intelligence and playfulness are not 
mutually exclusive terms. Mouse On Mars has a unique vision and a 
unique way of expressing this vision, resulting in an unmistakeable 
sound which functions on a universal level.
