"Boris Hegenbart, whose collages sound like meditations at a street crossing with an invading swarm of locusts."
Taz Berlin #7214, 21/11/2003

"Boris Hegenbart, in his eletro-acoustic compositions,Hegenbart combines the aesthetics of 1950′s musique concrete with our day’s digital technologies of music production and sound synthesis, without restricted by the contemporary software’s limitations. for him, this software, as well as music-samples and the sounds of his every day life, become material to be molded according to his artistic intentions. this way Hegenbart creates the delicate and complex sound-scapes, he is well known for."
