released April 21, 2017

Early electronic music from 1959 to 1969 produced by the Institute of Sonology / Instituut voor sonologie, in Utrecht, Holland. Imagined with the great help of Konrad Boehmer.

BRAND NEW FORMS

These electronic works, composed between 1959 and 1969 at the Institute of Sonology by Dick Raaymakers, Frits Weiland, Ton Bruynel, Konrad Boehmer, Gottfried Michael Koenig and Rainer Riehn, are raw material similar to what Mego could release today. We need to reflect on this period - the revolution of the fifties and sixties - and understand that what was done then was elaborated without a base - ex nihilo - a music produced by machines designed to construct the new.

FROM THE PHILIPS PAVILLION TO THE INSTITUUT VOOR SONOLOGIE

Officially founded on September 1, 1960, at the instigation of several people representing cultural institutions, the institute of sonology, had already taken initiatives in the field of electroacoustic music since 1954. A large complex of studios (initially under the name STEM = STudio voor Electronische Muziek) was set up under the patronage of Utrecht university in an old house on Plompetorengracht in Utrecht University; and the instruments and tapes (among them, that of Varèse's "Electronic Poem") of Philips laboratories' (important to remember the mythic Philips Pavillion in the Brussels's fair in 1958).
