  • Keith mansfield downunder

    hey everyone,
    just heard from a mate that Keith mansfield was in sydney for a few days over christmas. Apparently his son lives in sydney!!
    Keith now lives in japan and says he arranges more than composes. Hopefully he'll be back in sydney and I'll do my best to corner him and get his story!!!

    cheers,
    david
    God bless Fatso.

    Interesting - you haven't thought about tracking down Sutherland resident Sven Libaek have you?

    Last time I was up in Sydney some bloke who had been in the stereo bizz was rattling on about Eric Jupp and all the gear he used to buy, lived on Norfolk Island for a number of years from what I understand .. classic!

    One of the blokes from American Gypsy spent some time in sydders in the 70s, name escapes me - not sure if he was involved with any musical projects durign that time tho

          Thanks for the info guys.
          I called Sven last night, he was happy to hear from a fan. He lives in Ermington and conducts the Sutherland Symphony Orchestra. He has agreed to come on my radio show SOUNDSVILLE.

          Cheers,

              wow&#33;
              great stuff - so you just looked him up in the phone book and whammo?

              hope you can record or transcribe the appearance for Vultures to enjoy - there is so much you could ask him about&#33;&#33;

                    sven was pretty famous on the soundtrack music scene from the mid 60s to the late 70s too. he moved to Oz in the mid 60s and immediately got work scoring Oz TV series and some great, obscure movies. he has a very signature sound in terms of his arrangements too. I&#39;ll PM you some more info.

                      I love the Inner Space soundtrack Sven did. However, a *LOT* of the stuff he did down under is a little on the shit side. There&#39;s like 3-4 good albums that I know of... To Ride A White Horse, etc.

                      I have not a clue why people make a fuss about that crappy &quot;Themes From This Day Tonight&quot; record he did out here. People are trying to charge &#036;30 for it&#33;

                      Pasted below is some info from another site...

                        Two Sven Libaek tracks also appear on the Standard Music library LP ESL126 - &#39;Romantic Pastoral/French Music/Activity/Travel/Dramatic&#39;.

                        The tracks are called &#39;Never Never&#39; (&#39;pretty theme featuring harmonica and rhythm&#39 and &#39;Bush Wind&#39; (&#39;dramatic lonely theme featuring harmonica and flute&#39. The same LP also has two tracks by John Sangster, which may have been done in the same session. There&#39;s at least one other Sangster track on Standard which I don&#39;t have on LP, so there may be more Sven out there too.

                        Sven is also well known for his work for the &#39;beautiful music&#39; radio stations in America, which is probably where the &#39;Instrumentally&#39; and Midnight Strings albums came from.
