Programme Note

"Action-Situation-Signification" (1982) is the first work in which Magnus Lindberg turned towards the technique of musique concrète. This work is also important because it ultimately led to the founding (with Esa-Pekka Salonen) of Toimii - an ensemble dedicated to experimentation in compostition - which became a laboratoy for developing many of Lindberg's subsequent ideas.
