Title: Kluster/Information II/Gym Form Plus
Format: 10"
Label: Firework Editions
Country: Sweden
Price: $15.00
"produced in conjuction with an exhibition at Fargfabriken, Stockholm in 2002. the first side is a rather nice minimal piece, while the second is something quite different." - Anomalous. "Primarily Henrik Andersson and Henrik Rylander are educated film and photomakers, with Rylander having some background as a drummer in Union Carbide Productions. Here they have one collaborative side and each a solo piece on the other side. For the collaborative side they created a piece which has 8 identical CD players playing 8 identical CDs. Each CD consists of 7 three second tracks with three tones (C, D, E, F, G, A and H). These CD players are played in a random way and develop by chance. The input sounds are sine waves, but they develop a strange organ like sound, which constantly changes - after each 3 seconds. But even when you use 8 identical players, it happens that the speed is a little bit different so phase shiftings occur. Even if we leave out the ramble about the religious aspects of the organ like sounds, its a very nice piece. On the other side there is first the Rylander piece. Working in probably similar vein, but here the sound input is a beat loop. Very much an old Noto piece, which unfortunally drags on too much. Anderssons piece is based on guitar loops, which is maybe too short to show what the possibilities could have been. Maybe a more conceptual and collaborative work like on the other side would have been a better idea." - Frans de Waard in Vital Weekly 318.

Title: Extraction
Format: CD
Label: Firework Editions
Country: Sweden
Price: $13.50
"This basic sound material was recorded in my biological mothers uterus with my not yet developed teeth used as a fundamental and simple recording device a few days before my birth. This sound material was kept recorded and hidden until recently inside one of my wisdom teeth, but has now been brought to daylight and exposure. Digitally mastered, reproduced and sent out into the room which we all mutually share and which we usually call reality, the world. Sent out with the main purpose to change that room. You do not necessarily have to listen to this CD, the sound material should be considered more as a tool, a tool with a special purpose, favourable but dangerous. For best results: load this CD in your CD player, confirm that sound is coming out through the speakers, and then just leave the room. When you come back everything will be totally changed." - Firework Edition.

"This CD relates to the trilogy Flown Over by an Old King (1989), Talking to a Dead Queen (1996) and Pluralis Majestatis (1999) - in the way the missing leg relates to a three legged dog. The sound material was entirely recorded on the toilet. Reworked and adapted for the sound installation Avträde in conjunction with the group show Transformation at Karlsborg Castle, Sweden, during the summer of 2000. A certain room was chosen at the castle for this purpose and was later discovered to be the toilet for badgers in the area - a confirmation of the choice! Total respect was paid to the badgers." - Firework Edition.

Title: Pluralis Majestatis
Format: CD
Label: Firework Editions
Country: Sweden
Price: $13.50
"From the exhibition "Pluralis majestatis" by L.E. at Andréhn-Schiptjenko gallery, Stockholm, December 1994. Photo by Annika von Hausswolff. Recorded at Fylkingen, Stockholm, June 23-25, 1997. Adapted and mastered at Firework Edition, Stockholm, July 1997. The basic sound source is the metal bed displayed in the cover photo (along with contact microphones, a PA-system, and 102 tin-can crowns). For this piece I had in mind to work with this bed, to try to squeeze out, to discover, a certain "voice" or a sound, and let it go. I made some preparations and created a situation for the bed and the sound equipment, got it started and let it run for approximately one hour. It went its own way, it had its own life, and that is the point for me: Start it up and let it take its own direction, create its own life, its own voice, let it take over. I did not have any aesthetic plans for the sound, no compositional aspects, I just wanted to be open for what could happen, like a conversation. My work is very much an ongoing project, things are done and correspond to other things and vice versa. Its a big structure where all phenomena are closely related to each other and where the total image depends on every small part there is. Pluralis majestatis is the third and final piece in a trilogy. It is preceded by "Flown over by an Old King" (Radium 226.05 1988) and "Talking to a Dead Queen" (Fylkingen Records 1996).

"Yes, The Internationale is one of the most important and wide spread songs in modern history and its ideological value and weight can not be over estimated. It has been a sort of trigging for peoples belief and hope for the future in modern time and I belive it still have a great potential. I found it very natural to make a cover of it and include that in my bigger project concerning power and social/economical injustice in this god damned world (referring to projects like The Kingdoms of Elgaland-Vargaland, Experiment with Dreams, The Sons of God, Find Gods name!, etc.)." - L.E.

Artist: I SAW IT ALL HAPPEN FROM BEGINNING TO END..
Title: Life Everlasting, Amen
Format: CD
Label: Firework Editions
Country: Sweden
Price: $13.00
""I Saw it All Happen from Beginning to End and I still Cant Believe What I Saw" are Jeff Sedgley, from Brighton, England, and The UK Ambassador of Elgaland-Vargaland. The piece is a comment on the state of the health of the world. We are sick and we know it, but are helpless to act, as technology removes our potency and undermines our responsibility and our ability to make critical judgements. The listener/viewer is presented with a recording of a life support machine and its relentless quest to keep the patient alive and in doing so becomes part of that patient, attached by tubes through which the fluids of life pass, pumped by a metal heart into one made of human tissue. This symbiotic relationship is a metaphor for the relationship between nature (or organic life) and science (or inorganic). When is the patient of nature or of science? At what point are we becoming less than human and more a part of the machine? The recording from which this CD is taken is over 6 hours long; it was mixed and mastered at Thors Place, Brighton, England on November 18th 1999. The original version was recorded in England and mixed in Stockholm in 1998 - with thanks to Andreas Karperyd. The full length version was played live on an octophonic audio system throughout the day as part of Sonic SeaAir in Brighton, May 1999. " - Firework Editions.

Title: Experiment With Time
Format: CD
Label: Firework Editions
Country: Sweden
Price: $13.50
"The sound for this CD was recorded live in January 1982 at Galleri Mors Mössa in Gothenburg as a part of Serial Aktion. Serial aktion was the first piece I did that was based on variations wthin a serial, repetitiv form and during the 80´s was followed by more exhibitions and performances with the same theme. During the 48 hours that the performance lasted I markd my presence in time and space by firing three pistol shots at three targets at three given points in time (at 0 hours, at 24 hours and at 48 hours). The sounds of these shots and all other sounds in the gallery were recorded on a 60-minute cassette tape, which was immediately played and recorded together with all the other sounds on another tape recorder. In that way the 48th and last tape contained all the sounds that had occurred in the gallery during the entire performance, layer upon layer, distorted and re-formed through time and space and the natural wear and tear on the cassette tape. My actions were determined by the tape being played, that is, by what I did the hour and hours before. As with the sound these actions grew, hour by hour, into a more complex and layered form." - Firework Edition.

"Kent Tankred, born in Stockholm in 1947, is a composer, an artist and a performance artist. The connection between sounds and pictures is evident in his sounding sculptures and in the "visual" musical instrument, The Concresizer, he has constructed. Kent Tankreds compositions can be characterized by complex textures and spaces in which small details are of significance. As a listener, one must tune into the micro planes of his sound landscape. The text ⿝King James Bible Book of Revelations⿝ is the structuring element of all the compositions on this CD. In different ways and in many levels the text is transformed into something new, to revel the hidden words, the message." - Firework Editions.
