Robert van Heumen (NL)
After a life as a mathematician, a trumpet player and a software programmer, van Heumen indulged himself in electronic music in 1999. Starting in New York City with a sampler and various effects gear, he soon connected to STEIM, Amsterdam where he started to work in 2000. There he started to work on the livesampling software LiSa, and started to perform electronic music on stage. He was also involved in choreographer Anouk van Dijk's work, making compositions for modern dance. He uses a mixture of environmental sounds, toys, voices, sounds from kitchen appliances, and in general all kinds of 'found sounds'.
