MUSICA ELECTRONICA

Dick Raaijmakers (1930–2013) was a Dutch composer, sound artist, theater artist and writer. In many of his works, microphones and loudspeakers, often used in unusual ways, play an important role.
In 1956-1960 he worked in the Philips physics laboratory in Eindhoven. There, in 1957, under the pseudonym Kid Baltan, he created the world's first piece of popular electronic music, Song of the Second Moon, using only equipment from the laboratory. In a duet with Tom Dissevelt, he released his debut album with this type of music. It was the first ever attempt to use electronics in creating popular music.
