Michel WaisviszDue giorni fa, Michel “Crackle” Waisvisz, creatore di diversi sistemi elettroacustici come il CrackleBox, il CrackleSynth e The Hands, si è spento prematuramente nella sua casa, dopo vari mesi di malattia.

Nato l’8 Luglio 1949, ha diretto lo STEIM (STudio for Electro-Instrumental Music di Amsterdam) per 27 anni.

È una pura coincidenza, non lo sapevo, ma mi fa molto piacere aver passato gli ultimi due giorni a suonare un nuovo cracklebox arrivato recentemente dallo STEIM, così come mi rende felice il fatto di averne regalato uno proprio il 19.

Tu te ne vai, ma i tuoi suoni restano e si diffondono…

Michel Waisvisz died peacefully in his home last night after fighting the mean cells in his body for the last eight months.

He was born on the 8th of July 1949 and lead STEIM as Director for 27 years. He left us on a day when artists and friends from around the world gathered downstairs to perform for a full-house season-closing concert.

Michel was a musician, visionary and occasional gardener – touched by sound and forever happy to be surprised. He was the source of an enormous surge of energy that continues to flow through STEIM into the world.

We will miss his touch, crackle, inspiration and constant improvisation of the now.
