freq_out Skandion LP release

freqout skandionThe new freq_out 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. The multi-channel work is up and running in the entrance garden at the Skandion Klinik, a new hospital for cancer treatment in Uppsala, Sweden.
The freq_out project has existed 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.

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. It’s released on Sep 25 2015 by Ash International and you can order it from Touch in Europe or Forced Exposure in the US.

freq_out 1.2∞(skandion)

Skandion_toppfreq_out 1.2∞(skandion) will be the first permanent freq_out sound installation. It will be installed in the small garden at the new Skandion Clinic for cancer treatment in Uppsala, Sweden, and inaugurated in the fall of 2014. The following artists will contribute to the sound installation : Tommi Grönlund / Petteri Nisunen, Mike Harding, Jana Winderen, Finnbogi Petursson, Anna Ceeh / Franz Pomassl, Jacob Kirkegaard, The Sons of God (Kent Tankred / Leif Elggren), BJNilsen, Maia Urstad, JG Thirlwell, Brandon LaBelle, Christine Ödlund, Permagnus Lindborg and artist curator Carl Michael von Hausswolff. The project curator is Lotta Mossum and project organizors are Tomas Nilsson and Akademiska Hus.
The Skandion Clinic is the first clinic for proton therapy in Scandinavia. Proton therapy makes it possible to treat cancer more effectively and with fewer side effects than with conventional radiation therapy.  The clinic is located in Uppsala, Sweden and the first patient is expected to be treated in 2015. The clinic is designed at present for treatment of 1000 patients per year, but with an option of future expansion.

The artists of freq_out feel very honored to contribute to this project.
