His musical interests in composition and performance range from classical and improvised music to industrial and computer music. Being interested in intimate-performance music, he writes chamber music that frequently includes the use of computers, often with sound diffusion and artificial intelligence as key elements. He holds a Bachelor of Music from Texas Tech University and a Masters of Music from Brooklyn College, CUNY. He is currently on faculty at Istanbul Bilgi University, Turkey. http://dirkstromberg.com Tolga Tüzün (1971) is an electro-acoustic music composer and a Ph.D. candidate in Music Composition at CUNY Graduate Center. After receiving his BA in Political Sciences, he studied composition with Pieter Snapper and Marc Wingate and advanced orchestration with Ilhan Usmanbas and Hasan Ucarsu at the Istanbul Technical University, Center for Advanced Music Studies. In New York, his compositions were played by Cygnus Ensemble, Composers Alliance, and Contemporary Ensemble and at the 10th International Electro-Acoustic Music Festival at Brooklyn College. He also worked as Assistant Technical Director for Sounds French Festival in March 2003, as Technical Director in Stephan Wolpe Festival in April 2003, and as Technical Director for Argento Ensemble in May 2003 and November 2003, for Speculum Musicae in March 2004.

Built on the sounds of a bendir, a percussion instrument, and an oud, plugged instrument, Plugged is a calculated burst of sonic reminiscences deprived from all original locus and all of most probable associations. Brian Duffy Performances at a Dutch Electronic Arts Festival and workshops and performances at the Baltic gallery in Gateshead/Newcastle have seen critical acclaim and praise being heaped onto Brian Duffy and his Modified Toy Orchestra. With international art magazine Mute referring to him as ³a national treasure² it can¹t be long before the rest of the world sits up and takes notice of Britain¹s foremost circuit bender. Brian rescues toys from carboot sales and internally rewires them, converting them into strange and bizarre new musical instruments or as he says ³reveals the hidden mind /songs of the toy² , the results can be shocking, funny or just plain bizarre. http://www.warmcircuit.com/ Korhan Erel played grooveboxes, melodica, various effects pedals/processors in EHP between 2001-2003 with performances in the Electronic Music Festival of Istanbul and Essl Sammlung in Vienna. Did two residencies at STEIM, working on sensors and a radio instrument. Currently playing in three bands: laptop, cracklebox, sound processing in Islak Kopek, a free improvisation group consisting of two guitars, two saxes, percussion and electronics; sound processing in Mugwump, an electronic, audiovisual spoken word project; sound processing in Elektronik Kumpanya, a line up of Turkish Classical Music performers and singer Ayse Nur Yagiz. Sakir Oguz Buyukberber Born in Kayseri (Turkey), 1970. After a childhood passed being seriously involved with painting and poetry, Büyükberber started practising music by himself. The excitement of the ability to express the moment with the time aspect of music performance is the strongest force to make him become a musician. ³Still life to abstract - contemporary to ethnic - compositional to free.² Being a young Turkish musician who has three ³Best Instrumentalist² awards and over 20 Cd appearences including two solo albums, he has been participating traditional and international projects both at the production and performance parts, such as a composer, arranger, performer or as a supervizor on one hand, and creating his own music on the other. http://n-collective.com Robert van Heumen is an electronic musician, using STEIM's live sampling software LiSa with all kinds of controllers (some have called them sexy). He is active as a member of the electro-acoustic sextet OfficeR, electronic audio-visual trio SKIF++, part of the N Collective, and has shared the stage with Michel Waisvisz, Jeff Carey, Oguz Buyukberber, Anne LaBerge, Guy Harries, Daniel Schorno, Roddy Schrock and Nate Wooley. His soundworld is a mixture of environmental sounds, toys, voices, sounds from kitchen appliances, half of the time smashed beyond repair. http://hardhatarea.com http://n-collective.com To unsubscribe from this list please go to http://list.xs4all.nl/mailman/listinfo/steim .
