In which we visit Willem Twee Studios, an amazing electronic music studio in the Netherlands that breathes the ideas and techniques of Schaeffer, Stockhausen, Xenakis and brings them alive for a new generations of musicians. Built from the collection of Hans Kulk, who has been working with early electronic music tools since 1983, the studio is integrated into Willem Twee, a concert venue in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. Run lovingly by Rikkert Brok, Armeno Alberts and Hans, the two studios and the beautiful Tonzaal, built into a former Synagoge, breath history. You can find post-war communications technology next to early analog computers, classic Arp synthesizers and custom made tools, as well as a beautiful pipe organ and all you ever need to create tape collages. Everything is ready to be played and recorded, and kept in amazing shape.
