 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.
