Blurring the boundaries between the fine and applied arts.
Employing monumental projected images and bludgeoning sound environments, the multimedia installations of Ulf Langheinrich mark a new stage in the aesthetic of sensory overload. In the early 1980s he studied industrial design, and carried out audio experiments using organs and harmoniums. In 1991 he founded the groundbreaking audio-visual performance and installation duo Granular Synthesis with Kurt Hentschlager. Granular Synthesis have presented their evolving body of work extensively in Europe and the United States.
