After removal from the register of students at the University of Design in Halle due to his denial to accept post-duty participation in East German Army service - mandatory for male students - he applied to give off his GDR citizenship and eventually moved to West Germany in 1984.

While being a student at Gesamthochschule Kassel for Painting, he set up a studio for electronic music, developed the basics of his musical language and engaged in painting, drawing and photography. In 1988, he left for Vienna where a studio at the WUK (Werkstätten und Kulturhaus) was put at his disposal. From 1988 to 1991, he devoted himself again to regular painting and drawing, had a solo exhibition at Kunsthalle Exnergasse and released a catalogue of his work.

In 1991, he and Kurt Hentschlaeger founded the Media-Art duet GRANULAR-SYNTHESIS and have realized for more than a decade a number of international large scale projects.

Since 2003, Ulf Langheinrich has started to realise various big solo projects including DRIFT, WAVEFORM, HEMISPHERE (hemispheric film on a suspended dome granted by the Federal Culture Foundation of Germany and his first stereoscopic film commissioned by Liverpool Biennial ‘08, LAND. His artworks were exhibited in many venues worldwide.
