Ilmar Labaan - Ankarkättingens Slut är Sangens Början CD/Book 25021
(The Song Begins Where the Anchor Chain Ends; Poetry and Text-Sound 1944-1993). Ilmar Laaban was born in Tallinn, Estonia in 1921. He studied romanic languages at the university of Tartu and musical composition at the Tallinn conservatory. To avoid being drafted into Hitler's army he fled to Sweden in 1943. Ilmar Laaban's poetry, practically a class in itself in Sweden, traverses linguistic borderlands where words can get split and torn apart, reduced to something beyond words, perhaps more universal than words, but where the various components can just as often be reassembled in new words. The cycle of destruction and construction always fascinated Laaban the word-wright and word-kneader, going through it over and over again to find the cracks and clefts from which an unexpected spring might well forth.
