Recorded by Danish artists in 1848, this is the first release of a phantom song that was sleeping in the collection of the National Museum of Art in Copenhagen.The following is an explanation by the label. Includes DL code and booklet.

The story of Linien II's sound experiment is a handful of young, idealistic, self-revealing stupid Danish artists in 1948.Richard Winther, Hans “Bamse” Kragh-Jacobsen, Niels Macholm, Ib Geertsen and others take a detour to invent their own concrete art of sound, with radio engineer and composer Pierre Schaeffer in Paris. Almost at the same time as they worked on the development of Musique Concrète--they were in Copenhagen before Schaeffer's first groundbreaking music concrète work "Cinq études de bruits" premiered on French radio. The concrete sound work of No. is open to the public--.

In this release, five experiments that express in different ways the artist's attempt to find new solutions by replacing a series of formal aesthetic concerns related to Gutai Art with the medium of sound. Gutai sound works are introduced.So far, there are only two sets of works copied to the original record of the fragile lacquer board, both of which are trapped deep in the museum's archive, so it is a story that has never been told before.This time, the Danish Institute of Acoustic Archeology released it on LP about 5 years after recording, and finally it became possible to listen to the historical sound source.

With this release, a comprehensive art history textbook has been created.

This release was made possible with the support and cooperation of the artist's heirs, in collaboration with the National Museum of Art in Copenhagen and the Jorn Museum of Art.

Edition of 300.

Institute for Danish Sound Archeology:

"This release presents the earliest known Danish works of sound art. Five works from 1948-49 created by the visual artists Richard Winther (1926-2007), Hans" Bamse "Krahh-Jacobsen (1913-92), Niels Macholm (1915-) 1997), Ib Geertsen (1919-2009) and Gunnar Aagaard Andersen (1919-1982), all of whom were part of the artist group Linien II.

_

The story of Linien II's sound experiments is a story about how a handful of young, idealistic, self-aggrandizing and silly Danish artist dandies in 1948 by a detour invented their own concrete sound art, almost exactly at the same time as radio technician and composer Pierre Schaeffer worked on developing his musique concréte in Paris – and even presented their concrete sound works to the public at an exhibition in Copenhagen before Schaeffer's first and landmark musique concréte work'Cinq études de bruits' was premiered on French radio.

The release presents five experimental sound works that in different ways represent the artists' attempts at finding new solutions to a set of formal aesthetic concerns in relation to concrete art by transposing them into the medium of sound. It is a story that hasn't been told before, as the works until now have only existed in two sets of copies on the original fragile lacquer records, both of which have been locked deep inside museum archives. Now the historical sound works can finally be heard when the Institute for Danish Sound Archeology are releasing them on LP almost 75 years after their recording.

Accompanying the release, a comprehensive art historical text knits
together the story about the creation and context of the experimental sound works.

The release is made in collaboration with SMK National Gallery of Denmark, Museum Jorn, and with the support and invaluable help of the heirs of the artists.
