More from the Danish queen of the tape, this one differing rather significantly from Et Glasperlespil in its more pronounced use of concrète elements and the near-presence of a narrative - Else Marie Pade (b. 1924) is one of the pioneers of electronic music in Denmark. From the beginning of the 1950s, she, in close co-operation with technicians and assistants on Radio Denmark, produced a substantial amount of concrete and electronic music, partly in the shape of independent works for radio broadcasts, partly in the shape of accompaniments to various radio dramas. So far, the music has only existed on tapes in the archives of the Danish Radio; this CD is thus the first ever musical documentation of her work. AWESOME!
