Gibson completed his Ph.D. at SUNY Buffalo, where he studied music composition with Louis Andriessen. He also completed postdoctoral research in media and technology with Arthur Kroker at Concordia University in Montréal. He was formerly Senior Lecturer and Director of the Multimedia Program at Karlstad University in Sweden. He has been curator for the Media Art event Interactive Futures at the Victoria Independent Film and Video Festival since 2002. Simultaneously deeply involved with technology and deeply suspicious of it’s effects, Gibson’s musical, multimedia and virtual reality work celebrates both the liberation and paranoia of techno-fetishism.

Influenced by a diverse body of art and popular movements his work fuses electronica, immersive art, montage and post-minimalism. He works in a range of media, from live electronic music to full-scale virtual reality installation. Gibson has presently been programming and developing new applications which allow musicians and audience members to use their bodies or music instruments to play visual environments in real-time, in synch with a musical performance. This experimental work reached practical realization in the pieces Cut to the Chase, Telebody, Virtual DJ, CONTACT and When Ghosts Will Die which have been performed at major festivals throughout Europe and North America.

Steve Gibson’s installations and compositions have been performed in such venues as: Ars Electronica; the Whitney Museum of American Art; the North American New Music Festival; the Banff Centre for the Arts; Festival International Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville; the International Computer Music Conference; the European Media Arts Festival; ISEA; Interface3, Hamburg; Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Nürnberg; the San Francisco Art Institute; 4 and 6CyberConf. His work has been published internationally by St. Martin’s Press, MIT Press, New World Perspectives, Turnaround Productions, Future Publications, Urra Apogeo, and Passagen Verlag.
