From the STEIM website:
Michel Waisvisz passed away 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
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
We will miss his touch, crackle, inspiration and constant improvisation
of the now.
