Swedish artist Carl Michael von Hausswolff and Swedish filmmaker Erik Pauser duo Phauss released a reissue CD in December 2022 from the Australian experimental label Room12. (originally released in 40)

Recorded during their 1991 US tour.It is a dangerous performance that is unthinkable now.

A 32-page booklet with photos and documents from the North American tour is included.

Phauss is the duo of Carl Michael von Hausswolff and Erik Pauser. Formed in the early 1980s, Phauss worked among a generation of non-Swedish artists interested in reconstructing the beginnings of their practice in sound, light, performance and vision.This period was a monumental and fertile period for Sweden, where a combination of factors allowed artists to delve into the absolute core of their interests and production methods, and devote themselves to the constant discovery of ideas.

dealing with sound and installationCarl Michael von Hausswolff and Erik Pauser used Phauss as a means of deconstructing concepts such as composition, situationalism, site-specific work and extended performance methodologies. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, their travels connected them to scenes and communities spread from their hometown to the Middle East, North America and Asia.

As well as their travels, their approach to their work was extensive and innately curious.They work in often very rigid conceptual structures in which they explore composition and the material production of sound through performance, repetition, and deliberate experimentation that tolerates failure as well as success. I was able to figure out a whole new way.

Nya Sverige - Nothing But The Truth was released in 1991.  Hafler Trio and Zbigniew KarkowskiIt was recorded in the United States during an intensive tour withThe tour, now legendary, was both challenging and rewarding.Living in a van for weeks at a time, traveling between cities by the humblest means, gave Phauss a very particular vision of America: what exists in the mundane landscape. It is.Their experience was at the far end of the city.

Their performances on this edition were raw and frankly dangerous.Fires onstage, sparks from short-circuited electronics, and intense physical rituals guided much of their work during this tour, and looking back at bootleg videos from the period, I can see how the work could be presented in the modern world. It's hard to imagine.

Their tour flyer says "Extreme Swedish Industrial".The word may sound familiar now, but in 1991 it had a completely different ring to it.It was an obscure reference term, and the intensity of Phauss' music has remained unknown to this day.This work is highly individual and sets the stage for subsequent generations of musicians.

Room40:

"Phauss is Carl Michael von Hausswolff and Erik Pauser. Formed in the early 1980s, Phauss operated amidst of generation of uncharacteristic Swedish artists concerned with reshaping the edges of practices in sound, light, performance and vision. It was a monumentally fertile period for Sweden in that a confluence of factors allowed artists to dedicate themselves to the relentless excavation of ideas, drilling down to the absolute core of their interests and ways of making.

Von Hausswolff and Pauser, who both operated across sound and installation, used Phauss as a means for deconstructing ideas of composition, situationalism, site-specific works and extended performance methodologies. Across the second half of the 1980s and into the early 1990s, they made connections, through their travels, outward from their homeland into scenes and communities that stretched from the Middle East, through North America and into Asia.

Like their travels, their ways of approaching the work they made was similarly wide-reaching and innately curious. They worked with often quite strict conceptual structures within which they were able to unlock entirely new ways of considering composition and also the material production of sound, through performance, through iteration and through considered experimentation which allowed for failure, just as much as success.

Nya Sverige - Nothing But The Truth is a recording made in the United States whilst the pair were undertaking an exhaustive tour in 1991 alongside Hafler Trio and Zbigniew Karkowski. This, now legendary, tour was both arduous and rewarding. Living in a van for many Weeks at a time, traveling between cities with the most modest of means meant Phauss came to know a very particular vision of the United States, one that existed below plain view. Theirs was an experience had at the rawest edges of cities.

Equally the performances they gave, from which this edition is assembled, were raw and quite frankly dangerous. Fire on stage, sparks flying from short circuiting electronics and intense physical rituals guided so much of their work during this tour and looking back at bootleg videos from the time it's difficult to imagine the work being able to be presented in the modern world.

One of the flyers from their tour reads 'Extreme Swedish Industrial', and as familiar as those words might appear now, in 1991 they held a very different resonance. They were unfamiliar terms of reference and the intensity of Phauss's music maintains that unknowability to this This is a profoundly individual work and sets the stage for a generation of musicians who followed them.

The edition includes a book featuring a long-form in conversation between Carl Michael Von Hausswolff and Erik Pauser with Lawrence English. It also includes never before seen photos and documents from their North American tour and collects together an essential and largely under-documented history of this period of the group's work.
