LUNDKVIST, HENNING - THE END OF THE SYSTEM OF THINGS (CD)


"Henning Lundkvist primarily works with sound and text. The music on this disc is accompanied by a film. Unfortunately the video is not on this disk, but the music makes up a large part of this, because it is quite 'visual'. One way of listening to it is, as if it were a radioplay. Lundkvist displays the 'end of days' through ctationsfrom old sci-fi movies that had this as a theme - voices, anxiously asking questions. The roaring of machines, the thunder of rockets, explosions. And the music that accompanied such films in the 50s and 60s: full, orchestral dramatic music, with occasionally the fluttering of a synth, a sound effect to illustrate the technological. The End Of A System Of Things is a 32 minutes lasting radioplay, a soundtrack to a film. It certainly remains an interesting journey all the way through." (label info)
