24 - Electronic Vibrations

Whether avant-garde, techno or hip hop – electronic music is now a driving force from contemporary classical music to pop. It has almost been forgotten that its sources can be found in Paris and Cologne, where, amongst others, the Studio d’Es-sai in Paris and later, the Electronic Studio under Karlheinz Stockhausen became centres of the avant-garde. This is the story of how rooms full of bizarre equipment were able to become miraculous places whose vibrations set the whole world abuzz.
