Originally trained in fine arts, Montréal-based Intermedia audio artist / musician Steve Heimbecker has been creating multi-channel sound compositions and installations on systems of his own design for over two decades. His first octaphonic concert work was created in 1992. His first DVD 5.1 was produced in Montréal in the spring of 2002 and later published as a series with three other of his 5.1 productions in 2005. Born on the Canadian prairies in Saskatchewan, Heimbecker has retained a strong sense of the open prairie landscape in his work, which has inspired his sound space diffusion concepts, techniques, and designs. His award-winning work has been presented in Canada, and Europe, plus the USA, and Peru. His most recent production, the Turbulence Sound Matrix, a 64-channel, 3200 watt sound system together with the composition Signe, recently premiered to high praise, at the Elektra (9) Festival (Montréal).
