freq_out is a sound installation comprised of 12 individual sound works each utilizing a specific frequency range, made on site, and amplified to act as a single, generative sound-space

Any large self-contained space will work. The first event took place at Charlottenborg Exhibition Hall, Copenhagen, Denmark, in June 2003

Encouraged by d!sturbances, Swedish artist and curator C M von Hausswolff assembled a collection of 13 artists, consisting of sound artists, architects, composers, producers, sculptors, mathematicians and visual artists. The installation was part of 'd!sturbances', a larger event taking place at the Royal Danish Theatre and Charlottenborg in Copenhagen

Each artist is assigned a frequency range with which to work. This process is carried out in situ, each using a workstation consisting of a mixing desk and PA system. All the resulting compositions are then amplified together in the space to create a sound installation or performance. The frequency ranges are:

0-25 Hz
25-65 Hz
65-90 Hz
90-140 Hz
140-180 Hz
180-250 Hz
250-350 Hz
350-500 Hz
500-1000 Hz
1000-2000 Hz
2000-5000 Hz
5000-11000 Hz

The project reveals how space-specific certain frequencies can be, but also how other sounds can be separated from their source and 'thrownÂ’ around the space. It also shows how sound 'fitsÂ’ (or not) into the space provided by exploring the complexities of frequencies and their interaction. The final mix not only reveals the innate properties of the frequencies, but also the possibilities when they are combined
