Ulf Langheinrich (DE) founded the media art collaboration Granular Synthesis together with Kurt Hentschläger.
Ulf Langheinrich, and Kurt Hentschläger, founded the Viennese media art group Pyramedia. They have been collaborating since 1991 on their joint project Granular Synthesis, a term that originally derives from sound design. Granular Synthesis, are particularly interested in investigating the aesthetic potential of audio-visual re-synthesis, and are experts in the field of sound manipulation. Their live performances bombard audiences with light, video and audio projections. Recent projects include: Pol 2.0, NoiseGate-M6, Sweet Heart, X-tended Thrill and different versions of the Modell installation.
Since 2003 Langheinrich has also realized several solo projects aimed at achieving a direct sensory impact. They focus on creating specific modulations of the projected material in time and in the projection-space, and effecting interference movements between the perceptive and processing potential of the eye-brain-apparatus.
