Whether it’s avant-garde, techno, or hip-hop, today’s electronic music is a driving force for stylings from contemporary classical music to pop. Born in the aftermath of the Second World War, electronic music first emerged in the Essai studio in Paris and later in Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Electronic Studio in Cologne, which became avant-garde centres. How could rooms full of bizarre equipment become miraculous places whose vibrations excited the whole world? With the participation of Jean-Michel Jarre, Eliane Radigue, Jan St. Werner, Simon Stockhausen, Jaqueline Schaeffer, Peter Baumann, Emil Schult, and François Bonnet.
