Recorded in stereo quadraphonic, “A Living Man” is a work combining electronic sounds and recorded voice by the Swedish composer and sound poet, Sten Hanson. The composition begins with a self described electronic music symphony but soon expands so as to include a male voice listing a litany of qualities and activities that a living man enjoys. Composed in 1972 the work is typical of the type of text-sound composition that was in vogue in Northern European avant-garde circles during the late 20th century.
