Video of the new installation Steady Collapse (2019) at Kunsthal vARTe in Varde, Denmark. 32 white helium balloons are placed in a grid of 7x4 meters and 160 cm above the floor. Mounted on each balloon is a small exciter that transforms the balloon into an ear-height resonance chamber. Each balloon has its own unique sound, thus creating the ultimate immersive sound experience. In order to experience the work, one must move through the grid and further set the sound moving by engaging with the work.
Video from the installation of Vibrant Cathedral II in Braga, Portugal as part of the On/Off Concurso Artístico Noite Branca.
First cassette release in 21 years. Limited edition released exclusively for Canada.
This latest work from Denmark’s Hansen follows a similar path trodden on previous output, providing a comforting, familiar continuity to his work. It’s a formula that works effectively well, through varying degrees of light and shade; as ambient pads, dark and light, compliment each other without one overworking the other.
Numbing tones occasionally pitter-pat amongst a breathing aural landscape. The numerically titled six tracks on offer play with a variety of emotions; occasionally throwing a curveball of distorted guitar noise into the mix, with cutting glitches to interrupt the momentum and solitude one feels whilst being submerged in the story being told.
Overall, this limited cassette (produced exclusively for Lars’ Canadian tour) is an aurally expansive and dramatic body of work that deserves a great deal of attention and praise; and is a prime example of the genre when it works at its finest.
