An AIR-programme grant from Nordic Culture Point has made it possible to invite Lars to work at EMS.
Lars Lundehave Hansen has been working in the fields of ambient/drones and noise for the past 16 years - as a soundartist, enthusiastic promotor of and dedicated performer in these fields. The usual works of Lars L. Hansen are often constructions, making a point of being constructions, that emit or react to sounds or noise. In an attempt to explore the relations between timbre / room and action / reaction the works often revolve around controlled randomness, manipulation, expectation, suspended animation as musical criteria and sound as a physical entity.
