Written in 1985 after a journey to Hiroshima commemorating the 40 years since the atomic bomb, it gave inspiration to a piece longing for communication, understanding rather than deteriorating possibilities of  talk, CONVERSATION.

Electronic Music Ragnar Grippe


Written in the EMS studios on Kungsgatan in 1980, it was the composer’s first attempt with multi track recording (24), and a since long time urge to compose with a ¨symphonic¨ structure. This is an example of a piece that doesn’t use the GRM-influenced quick manipulations of sound, rather an instrumental approach.

The piece is dedicated to my then deceased father  Roland Grippe.
