Frank Baldé (1956) was born in Delft, and lives near Amsterdam. He joined the STEIM Foundation (Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music) in 1985 as a software designer after formal studies and playing in numerous pop groups. At STEIM he created a number of applications including Deviator, a midi processing program for the Atari ST, and, together with Michel Waisvisz, a program called The Lick Machine, a piece of real-time midi manipulation software. In recent years he has been working on the software-sampling package LiSa and a new program called junXion – a powerful tool for translating digital data between external hardware such as controllers and other input and output devices. Baldé also is the creator of a number of new musical instruments at the core of STEIM's Mobile Touch exhibition, and he teaches at the sonology department of the Royal Conservatory in The Hague.
