Steev Hise

San Francisco, CA, USA

Currently based in San Francisco, Steev Hise has been making experimental music, performance art, and video since approximately 1990. At California Institute of the Arts he studied composition with Morton Subotnick and Wadada Leo Smith, sound design with Tom Erbe, and critical theory with Dick Hebdige. He has performed across North America. His work centers around appropriation and recontextualization of pre-existing culture, in other words, making new art from the old. Steev’s recordings appear on several Viral Communications releases and on the Illegal Art compilation _Deconstructing Beck_. Steev is coordinating the San Francisco broadcast site out of his own home, which is part of the Church of the Immaculate Connection, a bandwidth cooperative.
