Heiner Metzger

Heiner Metzger lives and works in Hamburg.
He is involved since the early eighties in improvisation and experimental music, where he plays soundtable, saxophon, clarinet, synthesizer and piano with ensembles and once only groupings. At that time he co-founded the groups: vis, tyrrn, Timeta and worked with dancers and visual artists. Later he joined the TonArt-Ensemble, a group of hamburg improvisers where he explored the graphical notation as chance of an open composition for about ten musicians. At 2005 he created the soundtable, an instrument with whom he zooms in on the sounds of objects and the table, sometimes amplified by piezo pick-ups. He performs the soundtable in duo with Birgit Ulher (tp) and the Stark Bewölkt Quartett with Gregory Büttner, Michael Maierhof, Birgit Ulher and collaborated with musicians invited to the h7-club: Ofer Bymel, John Butcher, Simon Camatta, Dimitra Lazaridou Chatzigoga, Gene Coleman, Julia Eckhardt, John Hughes, Carl Ludwig Hübsch, Tim Hodgkinson, Bonny Jones, Christian Kesten, Goh Lee Kwang, Gunnar Lettow, Sebastian Lexer, Lugiano Maggiore, Ulrich Phillipps, Ernesto Rodrigues, Keith Rowe, Lars Scherzberg, Wolfgang Schliemann, Christoph Schiller, Damon Smith, Olivier Toulemonde, Jonas Kocher, Nate Wooley, Seymour Wright... a.o.

CD:

foam (2016) is an album of my solo work with styrofoam objects and the soundtable.
In some of the tracks i changed the recorded sounds and made new compositions of them, other are nearly as recorded.
the soundtable consists of two thin wood panels. the styrofoam parts i used have different shapes.
Study 1 of the Long While,(2016) The study 1 of the long while is a concept piece composed for an ensemble of two clarinet musicians minimum
