More about the PRES & conference
The PRES was founded in Warsaw in 1957. Its establishment had symbolic value, as it became a major platform for freedom of expression within the Eastern Bloc. Opened just a few years after WDR Cologne’s renowned Studio for Electronic Music (1951) and Club d’Essai de la Radiodiffusion-Télévision Française (1948), the PRES was set up within the state broadcaster, much like the other two. Conceived as a general studio, supervised by a musicologist, Józef Patkowski, the PRES became one of the most innovative enterprises of the communist era.

The history of the PRES is a story of the development of electronic music as well as the phenomena of sound and vision experiments in the 1960s and 1970s, which remains little-recognized within the history of art and exhibitions. The conference by Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź will aim to preserve this history and draw attention to the significance of the studio, not only within the field of music and composition, but also those of visual arts and cinematography. It will attempt to introduce the PRES as an institution oriented towards audio-visual experimentation, constantly looking forward, while being influenced by visual arts and happenings, which allowed the establishment of a new language open for the listener’s interpretation.
