From Heritage Space:

“Half-animals” are deliberate created occurrences, which resemble “nature”, or create a nature, or recreate “our” notion of nature. A result of a search that relates to the connections between memories, things and sounding machines. A conjunction of a mimesis of the animals and mimetic machines – to let the computer sing, to let the machines mime the animals. A result of the cheeping of a feedback and the memory of the sounding of the environment, created to be observed, created by a blurry apparatus.

A playing with the affection to things and animals: animal-voice-transmissions.

“Half-animals” will be performed by sound artist Olaf Hochherz and some outstanding faces of the New gen of the local Contemporary Music scene. Joining us to observe and experiment the extraordinary sounds with the performers.



Olaf Hochherz is a sound artist and researcher mostly performing with self build electronic instruments and computer programs. He develops installations and performance installations. His interest is in the conjunction of the instability, self-generation, and associative capacity of sounds.

He presented his electronic compositions at different Festivals. His installations could be realized in Germany, Taiwan and China. He toured with his performances throughout Central Europe and East Asia.

He got educated at Folkwang Hochschule Essen in electronic composition, Humbold University Berlin in philosophy and computer science and at Bauhaus University Weimar in sound-art/media-art. He holds a BFA and MFA in Mediengestaltung (Media-Art) and a wrote a PhD on experimental music. His research interest lies in the impact of technologies on artistic practices.
