Åke Hodell - 220 Volt Buddha (Alga Marghen, 1998)

Musique concrète, collages et pièces radiophoniques... Je me fais tout petit et je ne ferai pas semblant de maîtriser le sujet! On est sur le pointu label Alga Marghen, c'est donc une musique exigeante, et ça ne peut pas faire de mal d'essayer de s'y frotter!

Experimental Swedish composer Åke Hodell (1919-2000) have mainly produced Text-Sound compositions: a blend of Radio Drama and Musique Concrète focused on human voice and its electronic enhancements. All of his works were produced in collaboration with the Swedish Broadcasting Corporation, often with a provocative potlitical concern (like banned "Mr. Smith in Rhodesia" from 1969), closely associated with the aesthetics of the syndication of artists known as Fluxus.
