Lars Lundehave Hansen (Solo)
Lars Lundehave Hansen has for many years distinguished himself as one of the most visionary Danish sound artists. Not least, he has been a key name on the Danish scene of noise and drone as part of Noisejihad and as part of the duo Wäldchengarten. He has also distinguished himself through a series of solo releases and sound-installations, both in Denmark and internationally. Most recently his grand exhibition The Space Between the Silence in 2017 as well as his 2016 album Terminal Velocity shows his excellent ability to build a sonic space which is both dreamy yet physical.
In May 2018 he went to Japan to perform a string of concerts across the country, focusing on minimal movements, repetition and contemplation. The tour promoted the recent release Irregular Pattern Decay, which was released as an exclusive Japan Tour CD. The CD has since sold out but a video of the title track can be found here: https://vimeo.com/larslundehavehansen/irregularpatterndecay as well as a video for the final track can be found here: https://vimeo.com/larslundehavehansen/metricpoetry
TONESHIFT.NET WROTE THAT...
...Irregular Pattern Decay makes a sudden entrance but then quickly becomes hushed and shy, peeking in and out of a layered half-broken wall of drone. Muffled like a motor under a hood, the composer finds a way to contain noise by flaring the edges and rounding the corners.[...] It’s a bright set of impulses, interconnected and abstract, industrial and introspective. There’s this provocative fine line that Hansen pushes ‘round - between balancing white noise and projecting it in an expressive sense of acoustic coloration.

In 2018, The Danish Building and Property Agency commissioned 4 permanent, site-specific sound art installations, 2 outdoor and 2 indoors, for Augustenborg Palace in southern Denmark, and it is thus the largest public commission of sound art from a single artist to date in Denmark. The palace has been refurbished to function as offices for the Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark
