On July 14, 2018 there will be the opening of the exhibition Through the Soundproof Curtain. The Polish Radio Experimental Studio which Roland Kayn’s work will take part in.
The partitur of the piece Impulse ( 1959) will be shown at the ZKM in Karlsruhe from July 13, 2018 until January 6, 2018. Impulse is Kayn’s first handwritten electronic piece of 8 minutes and has never been realized.
From the exhibition website: “The exhibition will present PRES as an institution oriented towards audio-visual experimentation, constantly looking forward. Being influenced by visual arts and happenings, artists and composers, the PRES managed to establish a new language that is open to the listener’s interpretation.”
More information is available at the exhibition’s website.
