Heinz Weber

born 1957 in Donzdorf, Germany

 

studied Visual Arts, German Literature and Musicology in Marburg/Lahn, Hamburg and Berlin

 

in the 80s he played electric guitar in freewave- and improvisation ensembles, he worked on sound-objects and sound-installations

 

since 1988 journalist for radio and print-medias

 

in 1990 he founded SPRITZENHAUS in Hamburg, a center for media arts - organisation of soundart-performances and soundart-installations, curator for soundart-residencies given by the City of Hamburg

 

since 1993 SPRITZENHAUS-Sound-Studio

 

in 2003 he moved to Berlin

 

Since 1994 Heinz Weber’s work is focussed on soundart: listening-pieces, sound-installations, concerts and performances and also lectures about his work and workshops. His work is based on the question for the "tonal quality of things" ("Klanglichkeit der Dinge") – the searching for the acoustic materiality of subjects (like a tape-recording machine in "Revox B 77 MK II") and the media-reflective situations ("Musica Analogica") up to complex geo-social and geo-historical systems (soundscapes, "Hamburg am Wasser - ich höre Brücken", "Westbound Passage").

The specific aspect in his lectures and essays is the media-specific materiality and in the live-performances the handling of material as a form of musical interpretation ("Das Salz zum Erden #2").

 

Since 2004 Heinz Weber works on the "Schöneberger Lautsprecherkapelle", a live-instrument for improvisation-concerts.
