freq_out 1.2 = SKANDION
freq_out has been a musical project since 2003, when Carl Michael von Hausswolff was invited to Copenhagen to invent and install a sound-art installation. He divided up the audible sonic register into 12 parts and asked 12 artists, musicians, composers, and architects to each accept one of the 12 parts and compose a sonic piece from it. The result became 12 compositions/artworks that were simultaneously played on 12 different sound systems in the art space of Charlottenborg, thus becoming one piece. Since then, freq_out has also been installed in Oslo, Berlin, Paris, Budapest, Chiang Mai, Kortrijk, Stockholm, Amsterdam, and Marrakesh. This LP contains the studio mix and a live recording of the first permanent installation of a freq_out piece called freq_out 1.2 ∞ SKANDION. At the time of this release, the work is up and running in the entrance garden at the Skandion Clinique -- a hospital for cancer treatment inaugurated in May 2015 -- in Uppsala, Sweden. It's accessible 24/7 and anyone that comes by the place can enjoy the work. The artists who contributed to the work are Jana Winderen, Maia Urstad, Christine Ödlund, Brandon LaBelle, JG Thirlwell, Petteri Nisunen, Tommi Grönlund, The Sons of God, Franz Pomassl, Anna Ceeh, Mike Harding, Finnbogi Pétursson, BJ Nilsen, Jacob Kirkegaard, PerMagnus Lindborg, and Carl Michael von Hausswolff.
