Using Lehmann’s series ‘Norwegischer Nebel’ as both a visual and physical ‘score’, Drouin and Lingens will extend upon her language of imperceptible shifts in color and woven textures in defining expansive nordic landscapes. Using a section of woven fabric supplied by the artist, Drouin will amplify slight imperfections in the weave, revealing hidden irregular patterns. Lingens, on percussion, will further develop the sombre character of the large-scale works.

Jamie Drouin (b.1970) uses both electronics, and the amplification of environmental auditory phenomenon, to create intricately detailed compositions which seek to transform audience perceptions of familiar habitats. His installations and performances have been featured at several International venues, including recent presentations at the Biennial of the Americas (Denver), Mutek (Montreal), TodaysArt (The Hague), and the Henry Art Gallery (Seattle). He also collaborates regularly, pushing beyond any one particular musical style or definition.

Hannes Lingens (b.1980) is an improvisor/composer on drums and accordion. He studied drums with Michael Griener and Guenter Baby Sommer in Dresden before moving to Berlin in 2006. Lingens’ interest in various forms of exploratory music gave him the opportunity to work with such diverse artists as Tetuzi Akiyama, Sven-Ake Johansson, Christof Kurzmann, Olaf Rupp or Matthias Schubert. He has performed in internationally renowned festivals and venues throughout Europe, Japan, Israel and the USA.
