Elektronmusikstudion, EMS, is an established and integral part of the Swedish and international cultural scene, but was in its early days plagued by wrenching conflict. The book “Politics and Aesthetics in Electronic Music, A study of EMS Electronic Music 1964-79″ (Kehrer Verlag, November, 2014) will be presented at Kulturhuset in Stockholm in conjunction with a discussion of how the aesthetic and political conflict becomes a field of tension in which the Swedish art scene ends up on the world map. The energy was channeled as funding targeted two opposing groups of strong-willed personalities. The panel discussion will revolve around these conflicts, and how history is reflected in the present.
