+1 here at Cassiel Mansions. I’ve done a few residencies there, and
fondly remember the “STEIM Hotel” with corks bunged into the mouse
holes.

From http://www.steim.org/michel/

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.

Indeed.

We’re doing some outdoor cracklebox performance next weekend – I’ll
consider it to be in his honour.

I’m very sorry to hear this. Michel was for a long time a big
inspiration to me. ‘The Hands’ has had a big effect on my own music.
He will be missed.

him. alas the chance has gone. i have been giving crackleboxes to

I recently emailed Eric Singer about Cyclops and Max5 (it doesn’t run)
He says he’s not doing the port and suggested checking see if anyone on
the list knows the status… so… does anyone know the status?

It’s going to be a little bit. It’s on the list, but not right up at the top, and the port will be non-trivial.

It is a big shock to read this sad and totally unexpected news.
He was such a nice, inspiring and interesting man.
