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.
