Info

Heiner Metzger, lives and works in Hamburg.

I am involved since the early eighties in improvisation and experimental music, where i play soundtable, saxophon, clarinets, synthesizer and piano
with ensembles and once only groupings.
At that time i co-founded the groups: vis, tyrrn, Timeta and worked with dancers and visual artists and the Weltmusik Ensemble.
Later i joined the TonArt-Ensemble, a group of hamburg improvisers where i explored the graphical notation as chance of an open composition.

At 2005 i created the soundtable, an instrument with whom he zooms in on the sounds of objects and the table, sometimes amplified.
I perform the soundtable in duo with Birgit Ulher (tp) and the Stark Bewölkt Quartett with Gregory Büttner, Michael Maierhof, Birgit Ulher.


In 2019, we founded the Ensemble EMN, with Kristin Kuldkepp, Christoph Funabashi, Felix Mayer - which concentrates on performing graphical
scores, game or text pieces and open compositions.

Collaborated with musicians: Claus von Bebber, Ofer Bymel, John Butcher, Benoit Cancoin, Dimitra Lazaridou Chatzigoga,
Gene Coleman, Julia Eckhardt, John Hughes, Carl Ludwig Hübsch, Tim Hodgkinson, Sofia Jernberg, Bonny Jones, Christian Kesten, Goh Lee Kwang,
Gunnar Lettow, Sebastian Lexer, Lugiano Maggiore, Helmut Neuman, Ulrich Phillipps, Ernesto Rodrigues, Keith Rowe, Lars Scherzberg,
Christoph Schiller, Wolfgang Schliemann, Damon Smith, Ignaz Schick, Damon Smith, Olivier Toulemonde, Jonas Kocher, Nate Wooley, Seymour Wright... a.o.
mostly invited to the h7-club.
Beside my musical work i organise concertseries: h7-club, and in the Verband für aktuelle Musik Hamburg
and moderate the monthly radio transmission klingding at the local radio station FSK.

With Judith Haman i create videos, installations, performances, radioshows and curated the artist run spaces Blinzelbar and Frappant.
