"header_change is the latest installment in Norbert Möslang´s long-running work in the transmutation of light into sound. The title refers to the practice of changing the values in the header code of a data file. In this case, Möslang changed the headers of video stills from Swiss video artist Silvie Defraoui to create sound files. At the invitation of Defrauoi for her reception of an arts prize granted by the City of St. Gallen, Möslang pressed these audio files to vinyl and mixed them live. These files also became the basis for the seven compositions on "header_change," a work of slowly evolving textures, hacking across frequencies of light into sound.

Norbert Möslang is a visual artist and musician living in St. Gallen, Switzerland. His activities include audio and video installations, photography, works for internet, improvisation and composition using "everyday cracked eletronics."-Cut

Artist Biographies:

"Norbert Möslang (born October 6, 1952 in St. Gallen ) is a Swiss improvisational musician (soprano saxophone, double bass clarinet, live electronics) and violin maker.

Möslang had piano lessons. He then learned autodidactically soprano saxophone and double bass clarinet. From 1972 worked for 30 years with Andy Guhl in a duo; Since 1984 they went on the road as a voice crack. With Erik M and Günter Müller, the duo expanded into the ensemble poire_z.

Möslang increasingly used "cracked" everyday electronics in his improvisations; He intervenes in the circuitry of everyday objects, re-connects them, "cracks their code" as he calls it, and converts them into musical instruments. He also played with Barbetomagus, Jim O'Rourke, Otomo Yoshihide, Keith Rowe, Carlos Zingaro, Irene Schweizer, Kurt Liedwart and Jason Kahn. He also composes film music. For his work on Peter Liechti's documentary The Humours of Insects, he won the Swiss film prize in 2010.

Möslang also works as a photographer."
