Lars Gunnar Bodin – Bengt –Emil Johnson, semikolon,  SR ( SWE)


An absolute must have! A pioneering “Hörspiel” by two of the greatest Swedish composers all time: Bodin and Johnson!

Original 1966 1st press on Seriges Radio Förlag.

Originally created as a 6 part radio series in 1965, and released in 1966 by Sveriges Radio. This is the first LP recording by either of these composers. Recorded at EMS (Elektron Musik Studion), the newly established studio facility at Swedish Radio. This pioneering work did not easily fit in any category that existed at the time. Inspired by the work of Öyvind Fahlström (who was a pioneer of concrete poetry along with the Lettrists and Futurists), a few young Swedish artists began exploring new text based experiments. The only other artist releasing records of similar soundworks at this early time in Sweden was Åke Hodell who had released two 7” singles.
These Swedish sound poets differ in style from their other European counterparts mainly due to their easy access to the high quality facilities available at EMS, with its own in house engineers and sophisticated studio equipment. Given the close relationship at that time between EMS and the national Swedish radio station, their works often have a strong narrative (radio art) quality. Semikolon is one such work.

Highest possible recommendations!

It used to be a holy grail…. And very very few copies ever showed… but after the passing of the producer a box of records floated. Still… the total edition is under 100 copies…
