Video // Forgotten Characters

Video Art :  Kerstin Hovland and Emery Martin (Electronic Countermeasures, LLC)

Music :  Ulrich Krieger and Boris Hegenbart live at the Goethe Institut, Los Angeles on November 14th, 2014.

Forgotten Characters is a live music and video performance using software-driven instruments developed and programmed by the artists to celebrate the origins of computer graphics. The visual aspect of the piece uses software written in openFrameworks to pixel map a blend of live and prerecorded video to the characters of the extended ASCII library. Modern video images are transformed to reference the graphics capabilities of computers prior to the earliest bitmaps, calling our attention to both our nostalgia for low-tech imagery how far we’ve come in visual communication technology. The resulting videos are projected on to a sculptural arrangement of screens that surround each performer.

First performed with live music by Ulrich Krieger and Boris Hegenbart at the Goethe Institut, Los Angeles on November 14th, 2014.

 

Klien & Hegenbart

In Schwachströmen – Volkmar Klien & Boris Hegenbart

A concert for 2 musicians and an orchestra of paper-screen loudspeakers

Volkmar Klien’s pointillistic improvisation on a Rhodes electric piano is processed in real-time by Boris Hegenbart and projected via an assembly of custom built paper-screen loudspeakers. The two artists create a garden of sounds and objects invoking nature through the casual presence and fragile quality of the music performed.

In Schwachströmen
Ein Konzert für 2 Musiker und ein Orchester aus Papierwand-Lautsprechern

Volkmar Kliens pointillistische Improvisation auf einem Rhodes E-Piano wird von Boris Hegenbart live prozessiert und über ein spezielles Orchester aus Papierwand-Lautsprechern projiziert. Die zwei Künstler kreieren so einen Garten aus Klängen und Objekten, in dem die Natur erwacht durch die fast beiläufige Präsenz und fragile Qualität der Musik.

Boris Hegenbart (Audio DSP)

The Squint is an audiovisual performance series by Jan Thoben and Boris Hegenbart. Rooted in video synthesis techniques from the 60s and 70s, this project explores the signal-based creation of sound and image from inside the electronics. The hard-synced action of wild voltages is digitally processed and gated, almost tangible, as if perceived through a small opening.

Hinterhof im Hinterkopf ist eine Solo-Ausstellung von der japanischen Künstlerin Yumiko Hegenbart-Matsui. Gezeigt werden eine Auswahl ihrer Zeichnungen und Siebdrucke, die sie als Meisterin der Linie ausweisen und den Betrachter in ihre erzählerischen Energiefelder ziehen.Man sieht eine Ikonographie der Anderswelt, die mit großem Ernst und zärtlichem Humor Menschen, Tiere, Pflanzen und Landschaften in unerwartete Zusammenhänge setzt. Jedes Bild steht für sich – und doch scheint sich eine Geschichte fortzuschreiben, scheinbare Antworten werden wieder zu Fragen – das Erkennen führt ins Fremde.

Junko Wada – open studio / 17.11.2013

° JUNKO WADA   /   OPEN STUDIO PART  I.
  
Sunday 17.11.2013  –  starting  :   03:00 pm
  
07:00 pm Performance Junko Wada together with Boris Hegenbart / electroacoustic improvisation

 

Junko Wada is a painter and a dancer. As she uses a brush for her paintings, she paints with her body and the dance becomes a three- dimensional painting in space. Both painting and dance are abstract and have a very personal style with a faint relation to traditional Japanese art.

She collaborates with sound artists Akio Suzuki, Rolf Julius, Hans Peter Kuhn and others, with choreographer Sasha Waltz and a large number of fellow artists.”
