AllMusic Review by

Two wonderful enciromental pieces by these two Swedish composers - "The Blue Bird," commissioned by the Foundations for Nationwide Concerts as inauguration music for the Expo-Norr festival in 1969 at Ostersund, is a two-channel composition performed from giant balloons that floated over the city... the strange effect is that the sounds do not dissipate when over a listener, so that the height of the balloons made no difference; "Tellus, " commissioned by the Swedish Institute, was a sight/sound performance for the 1968 Triennal in Milan. The theme was "global welfare in social, techinal and emotional light."
