Heather Leigh, Konrad Sprenger

Her playing is as physical as it is phantom, combining spontaneous compositions with a feel for the full interaction of flesh with hallucinatory power sources. With a rare combination of sensitivity and strength, Leigh’s steel mainlines sanctified slide guitar and deforms it using hypnotic tone-implosions, juggling walls of bleeding amp tone with choral vocal constructs and wrenching single note ascensions. Heather will perform as a duo with John Hannon (violin/electronics).

Konrad Sprenger (Choose, PAN) is the pseudonym of Joerg Hiller, a composer, music producer and artist based in Berlin. His recent focus has been on live performance with a computer-controlled multi-channel electric guitar. Konrad Sprenger explores rhythmic patterns based on the Euclidean algorithm, to evoke a kind of cognitive insecurity through metrical dissonance. Sprenger approaches the strings of the guitar as frequency generators, tuned and set into motion by various electronically controlled mechanical actions. The music relates to the insistent rhythms of Minimalism, Krautrock and Techno, and their shared focus on transcendence through propulsive, full-spectrum sound. His music and installation work have been presented at Berghain, Pavilion of the Volksbühne Berlin, Kunsthalle Basel, MoMA PS1, Sonar among others.
