Exerpt from the booklet text by Sten Hansson:

"When Mikls began working at EMS, the big hybrid synthesizerone of the first of its kind in the worldwas still under construction, and the only available instrument was the Sound workshop, a classic analog studio and the place where almost all of the early electroacoustic works in Sweden were composed.
When the computerized studio opened in 1973, Mikls composed his work Movements, one of the very first compositions completed there.
By then, Mikls has started to work as an instructor in the studio, and later he became teacher of electroacoustic music at the conservatory. His involvement with electroacoustic music lasted for a ten-year period through the seventies.
This makes him one of the pioneers of the genre in Sweden, not least because his so called mixed pieces, works for tape together with traditional instruments, a genre that he was one of the very few in Sweden to explore.
. . .
It is therefor important that this record is published, not only for its musical qualities, but also to establish his place among the electroacoustic pioneers." [website info]
