Born 1959 in Saskatchewan, Canada, Steve Heimbecker studied fine art at The Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary. Since the mid 1980's Heimbecker has made recognized contributions in the development of audio art, installation, performance, and multi channel electroacoustic composition in Canada, receiving numerous arts award grants and residencies. His critically acclaimed (1999) double CD anthology "The Enormouslessness of Cloud Machines", is a showcase of his multi channel sound diffusion performances from 1992 to 1998. Heimbecker's installation exhibitions and performances have been presented in Canada and abroad. Since 2001 he has been producing a series of DVD Dolby 5.1 audio art portraits of places from across Canada, entitled "Songs of Place". The first 4 portraits will be mastered for publication in 2004, while in residence at Oboro (Montreal). In 2001, he performed for the final concert of "Silophone", the worlds largest instrument (Société Radio-Canada & [the user]). In 2003, after 3 years of research and production, the ambitious 64 channel network diffusion system, "Wind Array Cascade Machine", along with the first network installation "Pod" was completed and presented at the new media festivals Mois Multi (Quebec City), and Subtle Technologies (Toronto). Currently, with assistance form the Daniel Langlois Foundation and Le Parc - Videographe (Montreal), Heimbecker is building the 64 channel immersive sound diffusion system, "Si(g)n(e)" for the WACM system. Since 2001 he has lived and worked in Montreal through his studio, The Qube Assemblage for Art in Motion - 1987.
