Steve Joslin is a Percussionist, who performs and composes in Algorithmic, Electronic, and Progressive Rock genres. His work ranges from meditative to visceral and incorporates technology in interesting ways.
Steve earned a BFA in Performing Arts Technology and MA in Media Arts from the University of Michigan in 2011 & 2013. Currently, he is completing work towards a DMA in Music Performance - in Data-Driven Instruments at the University of Oregon.
Steve performs live as a solo artist, ensemble drummer, performer/composer in small dance groups as well as with his band. He is an equally talented visual artist employing 2D and 3D animations and visual effects that are both generated live and interact with his audio compositions. In one of his more popular pieces, “Colour Obscura”, Steve generates colours from an iPhone that are sent to an application he developed that creates music from the colours as well as captivating visuals - in real-time.
Connecting the Dots is a live performance featuring music, dance, and interactive visuals. Each piece is unique and showcases different aspects of technology and performance techniques.
