Saskatchewan-born, Québec-based artist Steve Heimbecker studied painting, sculpture, and performance. Although he hasn’t abandoned his interest in the visual – or more precisely, spatial – dimensions, he has focused his career mainly on sound and often defines himself as a sound sculptor. Recognised for his work in audio art, multi-channel composition, and experimental sound design, he has produced numerous large-scale sculptures and installations. Using digital media and mechanical systems of his own design and construction, he evokes the rich tradition of alternative instruments and sound production systems dating back to the experiments of the futurists and Dadaists.
CRiSAP and the Sound Arts Department at LCC co-run a Visiting Practitioners Series of weekly talks at the college, exploring the diverse field of sound arts practice. Each term one sound arts staff member curates the series of talks, inviting a number of sound practitioners to share their work.
