Meet the instructor:

Steve is an LA-based electronic musician and multimedia artist who combines deep dub bass, glitchy breaks, bioacoustic atmospheres and sinewave melodies to create his patented brand of ambient glitch dub. Known for his vast and eclectic array of artistic collaborations, Nalepa through years has produced spectacular audio-visual events and shared billing with some of the world’s best electronic musicians. He is considered an key innovator in the west coast audio-visual scene and holds the appropriate title of Flavorpills “beat guru”. Nalepa has performed at The Do Lab Stage at Coachella 2007, produced tracks with legends such as Bill Laswell and Pharoah Sanders, rocked it at Flavorpill’s Friday’s Off the 405 Series at the Getty Museum, and shared billing with Amon Tobin, Cut Chemist and DJ Spooky at Walt Disney Concert Hall and performed on The Do Lab Stage at Coachella 2007. Nalepa is one of the artists featured in Visionaire 53 SOUND which features 100 original sound pieces by David Byrne, U2, Danger Mouse, Dan The Automator, Yoko Ono and more.
