Celebrating The Studio For Electronic Music: Google Marks 66th Anniversary Of ‘First Modern Music Studio’ With A Doodle
Google is celebrating the Studio for Electronic Music’s innovation and creative legacy with a new Doodle on its 66th anniversary. The famous logo of the electronic music has received an amazing colorful transformation in the new doodle. The creative doodle is made by Berlin-based illustrator Henning Wagenbreth. Today’s doodle “celebrates the diversity of thought and imagination that built this studio and transformed the possibilities of music,” says Google. Electronica which is a recent phenomenon has its roots tracing back to 66 years to the German city of Cologne. Three composers including Robert Beyer, Herbert Eimerthe and Werner Meyer-Eppler explored creating electronic music for years after which they made a dedicated Studio for Electronic Music under the West German Broadcasting Corporation.
The Studio for Electronic Music welcomed musicians and producers from around the world during the second half of the twentieth century to create music. Google explains the music created by the artists as “breakthrough beats” and also used “editing and mixing sounds using new types of equipment and technical composition”. The studio had become a breeding ground for musical innovation with composers and musicians coming from far and wide.
The original studio kept on widening the boundaries of electronic music and develop new sounds and ideas till the year 2000. The search engine giant, Google, paid tributes to Latin music icon Selena Quintanilla with a special doodle on Tuesday celebrating her music and legacy. Selena who was one of the most celebrated Mexican-American performers in the late 20th century had earned the title ‘Queen of Tejano music’.
