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 Stadsteatern 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.
