9. radiOM.org - Two Text-Sound Compositions by Sten Hanson [5.073% Popularity: 0.00000]
Two Text-Sound Compositions by Sten Hanson Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 7 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Two text-sound compositions by the Sten Hanson. The first work, “Revolution,” includes electronic sounds with processed speech that combine to form a call for immediate action. Phrases such as “I’m calling you,” “you can hear me,” “do something,” and “very soon now” are repeated while also being subjected to various forms of tape manipulation, before culminating in the abrupt warning “you’ll be dead.” The second work, “Western Europe,” offers a satirical view of suburban-like superficiality. It begins with a woman telling the story of her delightfully ideal life, in the “only really human part of the world,” with a “sweet little car” to drive, and the most “divine little contraceptive you can ever imagine.” The piece then seems to deconstruct this fantasy by repeating it with added whispers and sounds that are more evocative of a desolate be...

Also heard are a couple of pieces of sound poetry by Charles Amirkhanian, some of which may have been improvised on the spot by the host, and a program closing montage of electronic music, excerpts from “The Merchant of Venice”, committee meeting roll calls, and other sundry sounds. Filling in the gaps of this lively and engaging program are selections of world music, wolves howling, and the sounds of breathing. Taken in its entiret...
