Sturmherta + Jakob Schauer

fr 31052420:00 VVK + Abendkassa Live

Austrian artist Daniel Haas, born 1992, lives and works in Linz/Austria and studies „timebased and interactive mediaarts“ at university of arts Linz. With roots in the modular-synth-community he created the project „STURMHERTA“. Under this sy nonym he released several digital EPs and tapes, but mostly he focusses on live-performance. In STURMHERTAs repertoire we find hybrid-modular livesets, intense, stroboscopic audiovisual per formances and immersive sound installations. A recurring element in his works is the strong con nection of sound and light, often found as a direct translation of one to the other.


Jakob Schauer is a musician, performer and sound artist from Vienna with an extensive CV of solo and collaborative performances featuring fixed media as well as audio-visual formats of pure electronics, both improvised and composed. 

His visually and emotionally evocative sceneries are created by analog and synthetic sources in an attempt to build hyper-realistic atmospheres. Interested in sounds as objects and in sonic gestures, his approach to sound is visual, spatial and interdisciplinary.

He has performed at a wide range of city and festivals that include Klangmanifeste, Lichtfest Krems, Playground AV Festival, Sonic Territories or Oktolog Festival and designed spatial sound installation, multi media installations and art works in virtual reality for various contexts.

His discography includes releases on ForWind, Smallforms, Moozak and Beachbuddiesrecords where his focus has been on music and sound that falls under the contemporary, electro-acoustic, ambient and noise umbrella.

His ForWind debut with the powerful seven track trip, ‘In death I am caressing you’. A considerable amount of time was spent developing the music and ideas into a magnetic mix of deep drones, eerie atmospherics and blissful melancholy with a good dash of humour in the surreal and vibrant cover photos.

Further he is the curator of the concert row „Wow! Signal“ and the annual “Wow Signal Festival” for audiovisual arts.
