The Institute for Psychoacustics and Electronic Music (IPEM) was founded in 1963, as a joint venture between the Belgian Radio and Television broadcasting company (BRT) and the University of Ghent. In terms of international standards, IPEM has always been a small-scale enterprise. Small-scale implies creativity in IPEM's case, and the institute is proud to have played a role in the development of new music and new music research in Belgium and abroad. Up to the present day, IPEM has functioned as a rare breeding center for new ideas: a laboratory for experiment and research.
The music production at IPEM was guided by the composers Louis De Meester, Karel Goeyvaerts and Lucien Goethals. These composers had a contract with the BRT and realized many compositions and radio transmissions on contemporary music. In the above images, Lucien Goethals is seen working on the Synthi100.
