Heribert Friedl — Laptop
Duration: 11‘16“ (excpt)
Type: Audio recording provided by the artist
Heribert Friedl follows the kind of minimalist aesthetics that works with a few sounds, small events, nearly imperceptible movements. Despite seeming simple, this is a very delicate kind of music: each and every sound bears enormous significance and have to bear the responsibility for the whole work.
Heribert Friedl lives in Vienna and studied sculpture at the University of Applied Arts there. In his exhibitions he has been working with scents and its non visual phenomenons in combination with sounds. Since 1998 he plays music in solo or with artists like John Norman (Radian) and Bernhard Günter (who is probably the most well-known figure in this kind of minimalist music). After more mp3-releases and albums on labels LINE, trente oiseaux (that of Günter) and and/OAR he founded his label nonvisualobjects with Raphael Moser in 2005. The label releases works by such renowned minimalist artists as Steve Roden, Richard Chartier, Roel Meelkop, Bernhard Günter, among others.
