Short biography of Sten Hanson: Born in Klövsjö, Sweden on 15th April 1936; died in Stockholm, Sweden on 1st November 2013. Sten Hanson made his appearance in the early sixties as an experimental poet and composer. From an early stage he was aware of the importance of tape-recording techniques in the renewal and development of poetry’s resources. Text-sound-visual image, often combined with intensely personal 'live" performances, are vital ingredients in Sten Hanson's artistic workmanship and he is ore of the forerunners in the field of multi-media art. His works include electro-acoustic pieces as well as instrumental and vocal compositions. From the end of the sixties up to 1979, he worked essentially with electroacoustic music and created, with Lars-Gunnar Bodin, Åke Hodell, Bengt Emil Johnson, the theory and the practice of a new aesthetic field: "The electronic text-sound". Sten Hanson realized a large number of works in various styles : works for television, ballet music, performances, audiovisual performances assisted by computer, pieces for instruments and tape and/or electronics, works for orchestras and computer music. Hanson was member of the International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM) International. In Sweden, he was Director (1968-1977) and then Chairman (1980-1984) of Fylkingen, chairman of the ISCM (1975-1981), member of the Royal Academy of Music of Sweden and President of the Swedish Composers' Union (1985-1994), chairman of the International Confederation of Electroacoustic Music (ICEM) from 1997 to 2002.
