PETER KIRN is editor of CDM (, for nearly ten years an online resource for music and live visual technology, and a journalist, musician, and media artist. He is also co-creator of the MeeBlip, open-source electronic musical instrument hardware. Classically trained in composition, he produces electronic music and visual performances ranging from experimental to techno, as well as making music as half of NERK/KIRN (V-Records). His work is especially focused on live and real-time performance, drawing heavily from custom-built software and tools, and connections between music and other media, from dance to visual abstraction.
