Stephan Chase composes, improvises, and walks quite a lot. Most of his work explores aspects of interaction between people, between action and sound, between sound and space, between space and time. These (usually overlapping) obsessions are explored through scores, performance, installation, improvisation and walking, veering between generative methods and following-his-nose.
