Originally released in 2006. With his works, the Swedish artist Carl Michael Von Hausswolff takes interest in revealing and using acoustic, visual, social and cultural phenomena. For the CD Leech, he acts as a parasite on works by Olafur Eliasson, Carsten Höller, Tommi Grönlund/Petteri Nisunen and Richard James. On the first three pieces, he sucked energy/sound out from the electric functions of those works; sounds that normally cannot be heard. On James' work, he bruises the skin's surface as leeches usually do before they penetrate the body. This is a new way of sampling; a reading of the un-readable in certain types of art works. It might be a "L'art pour l'art" production, but this was unavoidable as this "search for the real" continued. Leech is the second release by Carl Michael Von Hausswolff on Raster-Noton.
