Steve Barsotti

Steve Barsotti is a Seattle based improviser, sound artist, instrument inventor and educator. He is active in several ongoing projects including the Seattle Phonographers Union, a collective that improvises in real time with unprocessed field recordings, and Mimeomeme, a record label that disseminates unusual sound art made by an eclectic collective of artists involved with a variety of unconventional techniques. His two solo CDs Along These Lines and Say “tin-tah-pee-mic”, contain improvisations with object recordings, location recordings, phonography, and electro-acoustic processing. His album Rarebit, with Eric Leonardson, features improvisations on invented instruments. His work has been described as “quite cinematic and unsettling.” and as “ushering the listener across an ambient divide.”

As an audio engineer and producer Barsotti has worked with non-profit sonic arts organizations Experimental Sound Studio in Chicago and Jack Straw Productions in Seattle, where he has co-produced various projects including the Sounds From Chicago series, The Chicago Soundscape project, and various installations in the Jack Straw New Media Gallery. Barsotti has worked with such notable artists as Lynn Book, Michael Zerang, Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Stuart Dempster, Hal Rammel, Stuart Keeler, Gene Coleman, and Suzie Kozawa among others. Barsotti taught previously at Columbia College Chicago and at the Art Institute of Seattle, where he still teaches sound design and audio production.
