Richard Eigner’s Denoising Project Concert At Beirut Art Center

Name: Richard Eigner’s Denoising Project Concert At Beirut Art Center

Details: “He had a simple but beautiful idea which of course is what got him a place in this small gallery of great ideas: he denoised noise music”

Denoising Live Noise Music: instead of utilising noise-reduction algorithms for their intended purpose (the restoration of damaged audio signals), these processes are applied to various noise music compositions from early Luigi Russolo and Pierre Henry pieces, to contemporary works of Merzbow …and Fennesz. With guest musician Osman Arabi

Denoising Field Recordings: applies these processes to various field recordings of trains, streets, swimminghalls and public transport.

Which audible parameters are able to resist this “audio-erasement process”? How are these traces comparable to the visual reminiscences of Robert Rauschenberg’s erasure of a de Kooning drawing?

Richard Eigner was born 1983 in Linz, he is a composer, drummer, sound-artist and producer. His music crosses the borders of minimal music, jazz and electronica with a focus on the symbiotic use of acoustic elements and electronically produced and processed sounds. He studied Multimedia Art with a major in Audio Art at the University of Applied Sciences Salzburg, Music and Media Technologies at Anton Bruckner Private University Linz and Media Cultures & Art Theory at Art University Linz. His main projects are Denoising and the electro-acoustic project Ritornell that released its debut-album Golden Solitude on the renowned Berlin label ‘Karaoke Kalk’ in 2009. Performances and exhibits include the Sónar Festival, Barcelona; TodaysArt Festival, Den Haag; Lentos Art Museum Linz; RBMA, Melbourne; Copenhagen Jazz Festival; Tuned City Festival, Berlin; Ars Electronica Festival, Linz.
