Tell us about yourself.
My name is Claus Haxholm, and I’ve been playing music most of my life, hardcore punk, noise, jazz, postrock, primarily as a guitarist and drummer. Later on electronics were introduced to me, and my noise music changed, and I’ve begun to compose drone pieces, and more “elektro-acoustic” stuff, or abstract electronics, lately its mostly been techno and sound design I’ve been working with.
What can you tell us about “Rearranging Mists”?
The mix is a crystalline structure partly from memory lane and partly as a reflection of the current listening streams + the odd choices here and there.
It was made a improvisation, a set that started with a few choices which lead to the next to next, und so weiter.
In my (current) ears it became quite harsh stuff that’s presented, though I don’t give the harsh stuff as much time now as before. Ha! The sentiment of the harsh reality. for me this mix maingly consists or grey, charcoal and transparent colours or textures, if I was to transpose it into materials.
How’s the local scene in Denmark these days?
The scene where I’m based is rocking, there’s being produced a high amount of great quality art and sound.Im part of the scene around a place called Mayhem, a great venue, where a lot of good stuff is happening. Sadly though, Denmark in general seems to be a high-castle of ignorance and stupidity. I’m deeply ashamed.
Any upcoming projects you’d like to plug before we go?
To end on a bit happier note, I’m working on new exhibitions (I’m an artist) and new Assembler stuff slowly starting to show itself (been making other kinds of music the last months), and yeah… Ha, good stuff coming up!
