sound art and design of Brendon Ehinger


Brendon Ehinger is a Brandon, MB based multi-instrumentalist and sound artist. Having performed in a variety of Winnipeg music groups and genres since 1991, he has gradually moved away from conventional punk, rock, and pop music in favour of more experimental and progressive forms of music and sound art that employ elements of improvisation, unconventional instrumentation, and alternative compositional methods. Since 2016, his practice has evolved into a methodology of responsive sound manipulation that utilizes field recordings and live audio input along side Eurorack modular synthesis and audio effects. He, has performed solo and collaboratively in alternative spaces, galleries and venues in Canada and Europe including The Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba (Brandon, MB), Neutral Ground ARC (Regina, SK) and Warte Für Kunst (Kassel, Germany). He has performed and/or collaborated with Ernie Dulanowsky, Jeff Morton, Kelsey Braun, Poortree, Amber Christenson, Lisa Wood, Dr. Aaron Wilson and was commissioned by Tahltan artist Peter Morin to compose a sound piece as accompaniment to a performance of Experiments with Time Travel at the Kamloops Art Gallery in 2017. 

Brendon is a proud member of the Manitoba Métis Nation, a Freelance Graphic Designer and founder of Prairie Wires Modular.
