Allard Pierson completes the first phase of Gaudeamus digitalization project

The Allard Pierson institute recently reached a milestone: the completion of the first phase of the long-term digitization project of the Gaudeamus tape collection. Digitizing takes place in the Allard Pierson Studio. During the digitization of this archive, unique recordings came to light.

Read more about the digitization project on Allard Pierson’s website. Many musical gems have emerged, including Curtis B. Roads’ 1977 composition Objet, one of the first computer-generated compositions. More about Objet and the production process can be read in a blog by Erik Korver, coordinator of De Studio at Allard Pierson.
