Von Hausswolff was born in Linköping. He is an expert in the work of Friedrich Jürgenson, electronic voice phenomena (EVP) a researcher who claimed to have detected voices of the dead hidden in radio static. Hausswolff's own sound works are pure, intuitive studies of electricity, frequency and tone. Collaborators include Erik Pauser, with whom he worked as Phauss (1981-1993), Leif Elggren and John Duncan (artist). He also collaborates with EVP researcher Michael Esposito, film maker Thomas Nordanstad and with Graham Lewis (Wire) and Jean-Louis Huhta in the band OSCID.
