EMS music archive searchable online

As a result of the EMS/National library digitisation project, all music created at EMS starting at 1964 is now searchable in the DISMARC portal. DISMARC is short for Discovering music archives, and one can read more about the project here. Thanks to Lena Forsgren at Svenskt visarkiv (Centre for Swedish Folk Music and Jazz Research) and Gerda Koch at DISMARC, who made this possible!

To search for EMS material exclusively, go to Advanced search, select "Archive" as field and enter "ems". There are about 3800 items in all, but one can add additional search terms with "+" to narrow the search:

Please note that due to copyright restrictions, we unfortunately cannot provide audio files online. For now, you have to come to EMS to listen.

New Studio Engineer at EMS

Our studio engineer of 40 years, Göran Svensson will sadly be retiring at the end of November. Göran has been a witness and key engineer in the history of the electroacoustic music evolution here at EMS!

On 1/10, the new studio engineer at EMS will be joining us! His name is Daniel Araya and has previously worked as a sound engineer etc at the Swedish Radio. He is also very big on analogue synthesizers and knows all about our Buchla and Serge here at EMS and can cure them when they are sick!

Those of you who have been to the Norberg festival know that he is one of the driving forces behind it and may have danced at his own club Camp 303!
