boris d hegenbart [#/TAU]


During his one-month-tour through Japan, boris d hegenbart will present his third [#/TAU]production. plastic-box-rebels/[3/TAU] on the Staubgold label pays homage to Dub. It is an exciting cooperation of artists from multifaceted areas like New Music, Sound Art, song writing, improvised music, and Dub music.

18 guest musicians have recorded exclusive overdubs for boris d hegenbart: Michael Vorfeld, Fred Frith, Bernhard Guenter, Marc Weiser, Ed Osborn, David Grubbs, Georg Zeitblom, Stephan Mathieu, Sascha Demand, Martin Siewert, Martin Brandlmyer, Oren Ambarchi, Christophe Charles, F.S. Blumm, Felix Kubin, Boris Hauf, Hanno Leichtmann & Hannes Strobel.

blumm&tau&ym The young duo blumm&tau by F.S. Blumm [Morr-Music, Plop] and boris d hegenbart [Quecksilber, Staubgold] has emerged from the project: plastic-box-rebels. Acoustic guitar and electronics melt into melancholic Chamber Pop. The delicate drawings of artist Yumiko Matsui accompany the songs of blumm&tau like vocals. She did the CD-artwork for OVAL/Markus Popp, F.S.Blumm and boris d hegenbart.

"blumm&tau are performing futuristic folk music for the next millennium – move over pete seeger. The devices are simple: an acoustic guitar and a laptop computer are utilised by this two-headed hydra to create some of the most integrated acoustic/digital bastards to be found in an expanding scene. Quiet is the new quiet. Wow!" Christoph Linder, Planet Rock

"Highest concentration and an awareness of all musical and energetic processes": This is how hegenbart describes the atmosphere of his concerts; "As if I were moving a steamroller with a Perlon thread from one corner of the room into the other, almost without a sound."

In his work as a composer and laptop-musician, boris d hegenbart has unflinchingly pursued his own sound aesthetics since 1996. He has found his own musical handwriting by continuously enhancing his methods. "boris d hegenbart's collages sound like a meditation at a crossroad in the middle of an attacking swarm of locusts" [taz].

The brittle rawness of his sounds and the square-edged form of his compositions and improvisations stand opposed to implied melodies and slivers of bass and rhythm. In this way, he manages to arrest the attention of the audience and gains their appreciation. Role models for hegenbart's methods are the veterans of Dub music like Lee Perry and King Tubby, who, with the most basic means of studio technology, created the primary version of remix: Dub. Other important sources of inspiration are Morton Feldman's late works concerning their scope and harmonic tension.

hegenbart focuses on live-electronics and on transferring studio processes into performance.

He has graduated from the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna with a diploma of electronic music.

“In his eletro-acoustic compositions, Hegenbart combines the aesthetics of 1950's musique concrète with our day's digital technologies of music production and sound synthesis, without restricted by the contemporary software's limitations. For him, this software, as well as music-samples and the sounds of his every day life, become material to be molded according to his artistic intentions. This way Hegenbart creates the delicate and complex sound-scapes, he is well known for.” Volker Straebel, thoughts on music and related arts
