CM von Hausswolff
LAMPO PERFORMANCE SERIES
The Graham Foundation is pleased to welcome Swedish composer and artist CM von Hausswolff, who will perform a 4-channel solo electronics work using a multi-wave oscillator, microphone for voice, and computer. Recognized for his complex electornic drone compositions, von Hausswolff draws on wide-ranging recording devices, including camera, tape recorder, radar, and sonar, to produce intuitive studies of frequency, distorted electricity, and churning feedback.
Carl Michael von Hausswolff is a Swedish composer and visual artist. Since the late 1970s, his audio work has explored digital and analog recording devices, and his conceptual art practice has combined performance art, light- and sound installations, and photography. von Hausswolff has performed throughout the world, solo and with collaborators, including Russell Haswell, Pan Sonic, the Hafler Trio, Erik Pauser, and John Duncan. In 2012, he received a Prix Ars Electronica award for Digital Musics. His major exhibitions and performances include Documenta (1997, 2012); Johannesburg Biennial (1997); Hayward Gallery (2000); Biennale di Venezia (2001, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2011, and 2015); Portikus (2004); The Land Foundation (2005); The Morning Line, Thyssen-Bornemisza (2010); Stedelijk Museum (2013); and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia (2014), among others. von Hausswolff’s first Lampo appearance dates back to February 2001, when he performed Circulating Over Square Oceans. In August 2003 he screened two films for Lampo—Hashima, Japan (2002) and Pan Sonic Plays Kurenniemi (2002). During that 2003 visit, he also began work on a special project for Lampo and WhiteWalls, published as Red Empty (Chicago, 2003) and the audio work There Are No Crows Flying around the Hancock, which he premiered in March 2005.
This performance is presented in partnership with Lampo. Founded in 1997, Lampo is a non-profit organization for experimental music and intermedia projects. Visit www.lampo.org.
