Since 2004, Clemens Mairhofer (born 1984), Lucas Norer (born 1982) and Sebastian Six (born 1980) work together in the artist group FAXEN. Acoustic experiments in connection with items of everyday life, sculptural assemblages and the physical element of sound are the main aspects of the group's musical and visual compositions. The works of the artist group FAXEN deal with moments where noise becomes music and the difference between hearing and active listening is beeing explored. Alongside the artistic work FAXEN are running the artist-run gallery bb15 in Linz/Austria (http://bb15.at). http://faxen-collective.net/
