This 2CD set includes some of the most unusual sounds you will have heard from Carl Michael von Hausswolff. He was chosen by the 1997 Istanbul Biennal to create a sound installation for Atatürk Airport. His classic sound (low frequency rumblings, monotonous oscillations and hissy non-narrative sequences) was deemed too confusing for the commutors. It was feared that his sound installation might be mistaken for an alarm and could cause serious panic at the airport. Hence the original soundtrack for “Perhaps/ /Arrive” was rejected. This music can now be heard for the first time on disc 1. Von Hausswolff’s response to the artistic restrictions was to produce the four tracks you hear on the second disc. These only make use of the very basic pre-set sounds included in the Yamaha QY22 and show a new side to the von Hausswolff sound. Very simple, post-nuclear lounge music. These four tracks were used in the context of the Biennal exhibition. Ltd x 500 copies in a digipak, with artwork by Akifumi Nakajima (Aube).
