    Currently composer-in-residence at San Diego’s Calit2 (California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology), Rand Steiger has been fascinated by the intersection of classical music and technology throughout his career. A former resident artist at IRCAM, Steiger is particularly interested in combining live orchestral instruments and real-time electronics. His new set of works for ICE includes eight pieces, each featuring different instruments from the ensemble paired with electronics.
