Constellations: Electro-Acoustic Music From Sweden [coll] – [Phono Suecia] (2-cd)

cujo   7/5/2005   A Library

Roll up your sleeves and let’s dig deep into the Swedish electronic music scene. This definitive eclectic coll is mostly what your ears would expect from such a title, except I found the offerings more dreamy and cinematic and less abrasive than expected. All the 5-15 minute compositions are of the ‘instruments and electronics? variety, check out the listings on the back for a combination that might suit your fancy. I starred 2, but leave it to you to find the other star-worthy ones (there are at least 3 more). The 1st track (1959) sounds a bit silver-apple-y, but by the late 80s where the rest of the tracks date from, the later generation seems to have found an individual voice.
