● Nicola L. Hein (DE)
Nicola L. Hein (*1988 in Düsseldorf, Germany) - guitarist, sound artist, philosopher and composer - is a very active player on the german/international scene of improvised music. He plays the guitar with his hands and plectrum but also with a lot of different objects: screws, rulers, iron wool, violin bow, abrasive paper, magnets and many other objects which are part of his musical vocabulary. The result is his very own world of sounds, which is using the rich potential of the guitar as a creator of sounds. The manual creation is a very important character of this sound world, which never gets distorted by the use of electronic effects.
Different ideas from the world of philosophy (especially Wittgenstein, Rorty, Heidegger etc.) come into play with his musical aesthetics and form a discursive field that opens up artistic possibilities that lie beyond the possibilities of common musical practise.
