CLOCK DVA EXT VOL. 1 (ARMCOMM RIZOSFERA EUROPE ARMEU 007)

This volume presents the first of a series of collected compositions based on sonic material recorded at Elektronmusikstudion EMS Stockholm between the 18th and 24th of April, 2016.

Improvisational in nature and open to creative experimentation, they form the base of new original tracks for this and subsequent editions of the CLOCK DVA EXT volumes. Music improvisation, also known as musical extemporisation, is the creative activity of immediate (“unmediated, in the moment”) musical composition which combines performance with communication of emotions and instrumental technique as well as spontaneous response to other musicians. Furthermore, it is related to psychic automatism and precognitive action. These actions are the direct result of an intuitive creative process which is further amplified and expanded by artists who access this resource of creativity between one another. It is through this process that the emotional and unconscious can be made audible and expressed. Although improvisational and containing chance elements, these recordings also contain the spirit—which is what separates them from purely aleatory music. Within them, one can hear some of the tentative sound experiments that would be further developed into the album NOESIS.

Elektronmusikstudion EMS Stockholm was formed in 1964 as part of Sveriges Radio. After five years, Sveriges Radio renounced its leadership of EMS and in 1969 EMS became a state-funded foundation. In 1970, the large computer studio at EMS became operational. At this time, the studio was housed at Kungsgatan 8 in Sveriges Radio’s old premises. The technology in the studio, with its hybrid design of digital computer control and analog synthesis, was world-leading. This attracted a wide number of composers from several countries, which in turn led to the studio’s early establishment as an important international player. In addition to the large computer studio, there was also a smaller studio for analog sound processing called the Klangverkstaden. During our seven days, we utilised the facilities at Studio 3 where the Buchla 200 system is housed and Studio 6 containing the Serge modular synthesizer, which can be interfaced with from the studio computer through a Kenton Pro 2000 mkII MIDI-CV interface.

It is with this history and spirit that the resulting recordings were inspired and made at EMS.
