Thursday, November 27th, 2014, 21.30 BRANDLMAYR//HEGENBART Beobachtungen #01 Martin Brandlmayr — Schlagzeug (AT) Boris Hegenbart — Elektronik (D) Beobachtungen #01 Brandlmayr//Hegenbart is a Drum&Computer-Duo that works in between abstract Dub and  contemporary electroacoustic music. The collaboration started as a studio project. Recordigns and  overdubs were interchanged between Vienna and Berlin, eventually becoming part of Hegenbart’s audio  release INSTRUMENTARIUM (2012, *Staubgold/Monotype-Records/GOD-Records). Later followed live  performances, e.g. at Musikprotokoll, Graz and Alte Schmiede, Vienna. With Beobachtungen #01  (i.e.  Observations #01), the duo focuses on rhythmic structures and textures. Terms such as ‘groove’ or  ‘beat’ are re-interpreted in new ways. Without using measures or scores, driving patterns emerge which  are constantly changing. As a source of inspiration the duo mentions the flight characteristics of swarms  of birds, such as starlings moving as a multi-dimensional cloud that is seemingly unorganized at first  glance, yet shows a complex system of combined shapes. Brandlmayr//Hegenbart create dense clouds  of sound, a maelstrom made of internal structuring and permanent deformation.  [translation: B.
