CD – Ljud
This is a collection of historical recordings, dating back primarily to the sixties-seventies, with a selection that accomplishes meticulous research into early Danish electronic avant-garde. This CD collects experiments done with the help of seminal analog instrumentation, in studios where it was easy to find DIY mixing console, between ‘sine-wave’, ‘pulse’, ‘noise-generators’ and ‘ringmodulator’, and where, more often than not, several racks full of effects, microphones of every kind and tape recorders could be found. These ‘Danish pioneers’ were in a condition which was strongly stimulated in co-operation and in comparison with the main centres of the emerging electronic music scene in Europe – Germany, France, Italy and Sweden – which together with the United States imposed themselves as the most significant production centres of these new sounds. Two CDs and a nice booklet of 48 pages, with very interesting texts by Birthe Dalby, Finn Egeland and Andreas Hanse report a quality and a compositional rigor that still keeps up with the latest genre developments.
