PER SVENSSON "El/Element 1" Sounds from the primordial infrasound and psych-out (hostage hallucination, lycanthropy) to form a subtle "soundscape", like a poem... This piece was played at the first Nordic Sound Art festival. With his field recordings building a swell of noise and sound, like a heavy wind or sounding like doors and distant voices.
