Lars-Gunnar Bodin - For Jon (Fragments of a Time to Come) 1977

Commissioned by the Swedish Broadcasting Corporation to enter in the 1977 Italia Prize Competition, Lars-Gunnar Bodin - For Jon (Fragments of a Time to Come) 1977 is structured as a “dramatic cantata…with vocal sections for both chorus and soloists alternating with recitatives and ‘instrumental’ interludes.” The texts are based on “’surrealistic science fiction’—testimony and reports about experience in other worlds, real or imaginary.” The liner notes provide an introduction to the piece, a biography of composer Lars-Gunnar Bodin, lyrics, and illustrations from the manuscript, with sheet music and pictures demonstrating the electronic component.
