Frank Baldé

Docent Sonologie: Hardware/Software Ontwerp

Frank Baldé (*1956) joined STEIM Amsterdam in  1985 and started his Career there as a software designer. A major influence has been his close collaboration with STEIM’s artistic director Michel Waisvisz (1949–2008), which resulted in a number of music software applications for live performance. Frank Baldé’s programming work includes MidiDraw, the real-time MIDI manipulation program The Lick Machine (together with Michel Waisvisz), the software sampling package LiSa, and the application junXion, which can read sensor data and process/translate it into MIDI or OSC. At STEIM, Frank Baldé actively assists visiting artists to create new instruments using junXion. He has been teaching at the Institute of Sonology since 1994.
