BO ANDERS PERSSON: Love Is Here To Stay CD (Subliminal Sounds SUB-087-CD) CD
Wow, i’m so stoked to finally announce this archival release we’ve been working on to get to you for a very very long time….but here it is finally hooray!: The early works by Bo Anders Persson presented on this record were written between 1965 and 1967, before he started the experimental rock band Pärson Sound (and later International Harvester, Harvester, Träd gräs och stenar). Collected on 2 LP discs and housed in a gatefold sleeve including booklet with in depth informative liner notes and pictures. Or a digipack CD with a booklet. All but one track is previously unreleased. “What is the origin of this strange, unplaceable music? What is its place in history, in the unfolding of important conceptual ideas, turning musical modernism into something wider, more mysterious and blurred? From where comes the lightness of touch, and how does the transient nature of the sounds correspond to the sense of mourning hidden within the music? What makes the music so exciting and loaded is the feeling of change, both in the actual performances and in the atmosphere of the rooms where the pieces are played. The sounds move freely within the minimal, repetitive structures. There are spaces for breathing and dreaming, turning inside and outside, and a sense of being in between positions. Suddenly the doors are wide open and radical experiments can take place”.
