"alga marghen proudly presents an LP edition including two experimental sound works by Gherasim Luca, created in close connection to Sten Hanson who invited the Rumenian artist at Fylkingen in the very beginning of the 1970s and made him discover the possibilities of the advanced EMS electronic music studio of Stockholm. The two recordings presented here are quite unique as they are the only poems by Gherasim Luca created through the use of electronic manipulations. Luca was born in Bucarest in 1913. Before leaving to Israel he had a leading role among the Roumanian Surrealist group. He eventually moved to Paris where he lived until the end of his life in 1992. Gherasim Luca work is very personal, giving his poems a very uncommon and ironic character. "Autres secrets du vide et du plein" (1971) and "Crimes sens initiales" (1972) were both recorded one track at the time on a 4 track tape and afterwards subjected to electronic treatments. They were recorded in Sweden at EMS and first performed at the 1971 and 1972 Text-Sound Festivals of Stockholm. Edition limited to 385 copies, also including the reproduction of a worderful drawing by Gherasim Luca on the front cover, a photo portrait of the author by Gilles Ehrmann from 1959 and an essay by Henri Chopin."
