Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 112 min

Charles Amirkhanian interviews composers Lars-Gunnar Bodin, director of the prestigious EMS (Institute for Electro-Acoustic Music) in Sweden, and Bengt-Emil Johnson, one of Sweden’s leading poets and electronic music composers. Both were touring the United States in 1988 to present their music in concerts and on the radio. In this program, which surveys the scene in Swedish electronic and avant-garde music during the latter half of the 20th century, we hear a number of compositions, including “Nightchants I” by Johnson, and “Mémoires”, by Bodin.
