Anna Von Hauswolff will be releasing a solo organ piece via Touch in March. The vinyl-only release will be limited to 500 white vinyl. Pre-orders, as well as an except, of the work are available @touchshop. More details below:
Performed at Frequency 13 Lincoln Digital Culture Festival as part of Touch presents…, (which also featured Chris Watson & Hildur Gudnadottir). Recorded live by Mike Harding using 2 x dpa 4060s onto a Nagra Ares Pll digital recorder. This recording is unedited from the original raw file.
Though she now lives in Copenhagen, Anna von Hausswolff grew up in the once vibrant, bohemian neighbourhood of Haga in Gothenburg, Sweden, to a family who counted amongst their ancestors Bernhard Reynold von Hausswolff, an 18th Century governor of Falun, Sweden, who helped bring an end to the burning of witches. Although Anna has achieved acclaim with her song-based albums “Ceremony” and “Singing from the Grave” (both first released on Kning Disk in Sweden), she has always had an ear for the radical approach, and this is the first step in a long-term collaboration with Touch.
Von Hauswolff has also announced a new collaborative project with Swedish composer Matti Bye, entitled Hydra’s Dream. The debut album will be released in March courtesy of Denovali.
