APPARATUM
THE INSTALLATION INSPIRED BY THE POLISH RADIO EXPERIMENTAL STUDIO

Analog sound generators, based on magnetic tape and optical components controlled via graphic score composed with digital interface.

The APPARATUM has been inspired
by the heritage of the Polish Radio
Experimental Studio - one of the first
studios in the world producing
electroacoustic music.

The installation draws inspirations
musically and graphically from the
"Symphony - electronic music" -
composed by Bogusław Schaeffer

Bogusław Schaeffer conceived his own
visual language of symbols that conveyed
the cues for the sound engineer responsible for
the production of the piece.

The physical form is inspired by the general
aesthetics of the Studio's famous "Black Room"
designed by Oskar Hansen. The electroacoustic
generators and filters were arranged in a modular
fashion inside two steel frames - the construction
element that we've referred to in our design.

Magnetic tape was the primary medium
used in the Polish Radio Experimental Studio.
We're also using two types of “tape samplers”
- two 2-track loops and three one-shot linear
tape samplers. To obtain noise and basic tones
we’re utilising purely analog optical generators
based on spinning discs with graphical patterns.
