Tijs Ham ('81) is a Dutch sound artist and researcher, currently living in Norway. He is currently working as a PhD Candidate in Artistic Research for the University of Bergen / Grieg Academy. The main question driving the research project 'Tipping Points' emerges out of a deep fascination with the sounds, timbres and sonic behaviors that appear when chaotic processes transition towards instability. ‘How can the exploration of tipping points in chaotic processes inform the development of new electronic music instruments, compositional strategies and performances to enhance sonic expression?’
