Jonas Broberg – From K.K.S. To E.M.S. Electronic Music 1983-85
Presenting “The Modular King of Skarpnäck,” electroacoustic composer and member of pioneering Swedish experimental electronic band En Halvkokt I Folie: Jonas Broberg. Awoha Press, Börft Records and Djuring Phonogram present this totally entertaining electro-dadaist collection of his solo work, highlighting segments of his cult 1985 cassette release Kling Klang Salad (Konduktör Rekords) alongside previously unreleased material recorded with Jens Hedman at the Electronic Music Studio (E.M.S.) in Stockholm, between ‘83 and ‘85. Plying playful rhythms and synthesizer and vocal experiments from tape effects and Buchla synths, Broberg pulls strands of eccentric electro funk, off-kilter spoken word synth pop, noisy dub ideas, rhythmic noise and other lovable nonsense from the caves of his mind.
