Steve H Live

Steve H’s immersive, surround performances have entranced audiences from San Francisco to Berlin. His music with its glistening harmonies, evolving textures and echoing rhythms is influenced by waves, eddies, spirals, harmonigraphics and Fibonacci ratios. It swirls around and through the audience involving them in a 3D sonic journey. Steve’s main instruments are the ones designed by the great instrument maker Donald Buchla who designed Steve’s first “Buchla” in 1976. He sends his variety of Buchla instruments and ZenDrum into his proprietary Logic Pro X surround/quad 3D panning environments and processing algorithms, creating rich audio soundscapes filled with intricately shifting timbres and cascading rhythms.
