Description :Early electronic music from 1959 to 1969 produced by the Institute of Sonology / Instituut voor sonologie, in Utrecht, Holland. These electronic works were composed by Dick Raaymakers, Frits Weiland, Ton Bruynel, Konrad Boehmer, Gottfried Michael Koenig and Rainer Riehn. Raw material - we need to reflect on this period - a real revolution: music produced by machines designed to construct a new era.

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 for 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. Instruments, machines and tapes (among them, that of Varèse's 'Electronic Poem') comin' from Philips laboratories.

Notes on 5 radical composers

Ton Bruyneel (1934-1999) The realisation of 'Reflexen' took place at the Institute for Sonology and in the composer's private studio. Brunèl has written numerous works for tape and for tape and live instrumentalist.

Gottfried Michael Koenig (1926- ) He studied church music in Braunschweig and composition in Detmold. From 1954 to 1963 he worked at the famous studio for electronic music of the West German Radio (WDR) in Cologne. From 1964 to 1984, he was the artistic director of the Institute for Sonology. Koenig is one of the pioneering composers of electronic and computer music of the first generation of post-WW2 composers.

Dick Raaijmakers (1930-2013) Born in Maastricht, he studied piano at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. From 1957 to 1960 he joined the Studio for electronic music at Philips in Eindhoven.

Until 1966 he studied music in Mainz, Zurich and Berlin. In 1965-66, he participated in courses on electronic music in Utrecht under the direction of G. M. Koenig.

Frits Weiland (1933- ) He enjoyed a technical as well as a musical education. After working for the Dutch Radio and television broadcasting system, he worked from 1961 to 1990 for the Institute for Sonology.

Konrad Boehmer (1941-2014) Born in Berlin.From 1959 to 1961 he studied composition under Godfried Michael Koenig. In addition, he studied philosophy, sociology and music at the University of Cologne.
