Title: Mechanical Restraint
Format: 7"
Label: Fylkingen
Country: Sweden
Price: $12.00

Analogue Society are Lary 7 and Jim Sharpe. "All pieces recorded live at the Plastikville Studio. Sound sources through the use of pure analogue devices and various kinds of metal apparata connected through electronics, unaffected in any way in the hope of rendering a kind of sonic inscription of the machines." - Fylkingen.

Artist: BACK, SVEN-ERIK
Title: Electronic Music
Format: LP
Label: Fylkingen
Country: Sweden
Price: $16.00
"Sven-Erik Bäck was in his versatility unique among Swedish composers. Since his debut in the 1940s, he was regarded as a radical avantgardist and since Bäck was also a performer, the musical result became most interesting. Since his first electronic work -- In Principio (1970) Bäck produced many electronic as well as instrumental and vocal compositions. He also combined music with other media such as dance and visual art." - Fylkingen.

Title: Clouds
Format: LP
Label: Fylkingen
Country: Sweden
Price: $15.00
"Lars-Gunnar Bodin, Swedish composer and graphic artist, was one of those who during the first half of the 60s tried to integrate elements of different fields of art in his works: instrumental music, tapes, texts, actions, projections etc. In Clouds (1972-76) he developed an advanced form of musical drama involving electronic music in 8 channels, singers, dancers and slide and film projections on five screens. The music on this record is a shortened version of Clouds, especially created for this medium." - Fylkingen.

Artist: ENSTROM, ROLF
Title: TNT
Format: LP
Label: Fylkingen
Country: Sweden
Price: $15.00
Original LPs from 1986. "Rolf Enström can look back on a fifteen year period as a composer. His list of works includes a number of very carefully crafted compositions of high artistic quality. Several of his works have become classics; one thinks especially of Directions (1979) and Final Curses (1981). Rolf Enström is a composer who unceasingly seeks new artistic paths and new means of expression and this is something which has led him to combine music with other art forms, primarily the visual arts and literature. On this record, we meet Enström as a composer of pure electroacoustic music. The three works Dagbrott, Sekvens i blått and TNT span a period of eight years." - Fylkingen.

Artist: FAHLSTROM, OYVIND
Title: Manipulate The World!
Format: Hardcover Book/ Double CD
Label: Fylkingen
Country: Switzerland
Price: $56.00
"Under the motto: Manipulate the world - take care of the world, Fahlstrom set up a variety of meeting-places in which participants were invited to take part in an interdisciplinary game of purposeful discovery. He introduced elements of popular culture into his work early on and made substantial contributions to a critical assessment of the medialisation of art. In this, the most extensive book about Oyvind Fahlstrom to date, Teddy Hultberg charts the artists predominant lines of creative development and shows how his cross-genre endeavors were based on a few central ideas: character forms, signs, games and life materials. The present study focuses on two innovative and extraordinary compositions for radio: Birds in Sweden (1963) and The Holy Torsten Nilsson (1966). These works can be heard on the two accompanying CD records and are also included here in written form. Some unique and hitherto unpublished visual and textual material, the result of several years of research by Teddy Hultberg, is also included in the book." -Fylkingen Records

Artist: HODELL, AKE
Title: Verbal Brainwash and Other Works
Format: Triple CD
Label: Fylkingen
Country: Sweden
Price: $26.00
"This is the authorized edition of the collected text-sound compositions of Åke Hodell. It includes all titles which Hodell himself has described as text-sound compositions. The collection is taken from the time of the premiere of General Buddy-Buddy and Presentarms in 1963 up to Spirit of Ecstasy from 1977. During this period, Åke also worked with radio drama that often had certain parallels to text-sound composition, but never had any doubts himself as to which of his works were text-sound and which were drama. This CD-box is a living example taken from the most vital period in the history of the Music Department of the Swedish Broadcasting Corporation (Sveriges Radio, SR) and a monument to the fruitful collaboration between Fylkingen and SR. I enjoyed close collaboration with Åke Hodell during the work on this production. We had our last conversation about two days before his death. He had approved all three discs and had the day before received a 30% scale copy of the sleeve, which he had managed somehow to proof read, probably with the help of a magnifying glass and considerable exertion. We communicated what changes should be made and thereafter he approved the release. He left all further responsibility with me and bade me farewell, the import of which I did not realize at the time. Åke listened patiently to all the new edited versions of the pieces included here, always giving fresh views. All changes to the original tapes were made in cooperation with Åke. Sylve Sjöberg, the engineer who realized most of Åke Hodell´s works for the Music Department of SR, oversaw the mastering from the original tapes." - Fylkingen.

Artist: ROZMANN, AKOS
Title: Implusioni I, II, III, De Tva, Med Tre Instrument
Format: CD
Label: Fylkingen
Country: Sweden
Price: $17.00
"1999 release. Impulsioni is the collective title of three works which comprise the beginning of Rozmanns work within the field of electroacoustic music. Seen as compositions, Rozmann himself sees Impulsioni I-III as the earliest, almost primitively simple results of a line of composition which nonetheless has kept its importance for him. Impulsioni I is a true start from scratch for him, with the low first tone followed by soft, silvery sounds. The second piece utilized a pulse generator, and the third a machine available at the Royal Conservatory called a synthi. During this period, the composer used only synthetic sounds. It was not until later that he turned to concrete sound samples, such as organ tones, voice and other material. Despite the simple background of Impulsioni I-III, it was here that Rozmann became convinced that electroacoustic music is the greatest expressive device of all time, an opinion which he has steadfastly held throughout the years. Rozmanns art moves between many forms of society and civilization. Gregorian chant is placed next to songs by Buddhist monks, childrens voices next to the laugh of someone who is probably the Devil himself." -Hans Gunnar Peterson.

Title: Text-Sound Compositions - A Stockholm Festival
Format: 5 CD Box Set
Label: Fylkingen
Country: Sweden
Price: $60.00
"Fylkingen Records in collaboration with the Swedish Radio released a series of LP records with text-sound compositions between the years of 1968-77. All of these were documentations of the international festival Text-Sound Compositions A Stockholm Festival, which Fylkingen presented in Stockholm several times during these years. Most of the LPs were only pressed in batches of about 400-500 records, and most of the LPs sold out during the festivals. A re-release had long been planned, and this 5 CD box marks the complete re-release of the complete recordings. Apart from the 5 CDs with in all ca 6 hours of material, the CD box contains a 60 page booklet with essays by Teddy Hultberg and Sten Hanson, as well as historical photographs taken by Lütfi �?zkök during the festivals. The term text-sound composition was coined in 1967 in Sweden by the composers/writers Lars-Gunnar Bodin and Bengt Emil Johnsson, and was meant to serve to name a genre that was a vital art form in the no mans land between sound, poetry, and music. Text-sound compositions had influences from previous modernistic waves such as futurism, Dadaism, Lettrism, etc., but perhaps the most important influence was the Swedish poet and visual artist �?yvind Fahlström, who had just over a decade earlier coined the term concrete poetry. The term concrete poetry related to Pierre Schaeffers concrete music, and it is somewhere between concrete poetry and concrete music that text-sound compositions appear. The birth of the electronic music studio and concrete musics idea that every sound can be freed from its original context and given a new meaning when it is reworked and put together with other sounds in the electronic music studio became the catharsis for text-sound composition. In the electronic music studio, voice and language sounds can be broken down, unleashed, and then fused together to become a poetry that had never been heard before. Certain text-sound composers would come to work only with pure lingual sounds, but most eventually came to integrate lingual sounds with other sounds, both concrete and electronic. The CD box contains works by the following text-sound composers and sound poets: Charles Amirkhanian, Lars-Gunnar Bodin, Svante Bodin, Henri Chopin, Bob Cobbing, François Dufrêne, Gust Gils, Jarl och Sonja Hammarberg-�?kesson, Sten Hanson, Bernard Heidsieck, C. Christer Hennix, �?ke Hodell, Bengt Emil Johnsson, Sandro Key-�?berg, Bengt af Klintberg, Ilmar Laaban, Annea Lockwood & Harvey Matusow, Arrigo Lora-Totino, Ghérasim Luca, Arne Mellnäs, Franz Mon, Ladislav Novák, Diter Rot & Emmet Williams, Erik Thygesen, Paul de Vree."
