The spread of electro-acoustic music in Hungary was hindered for a long time by the lack of a studio of adequate technical standard. At first Zoltán Pongrácz has his own studio, then a few years later, in 1972, a modestly equipped workshop was established with the guidance of Iván Patachich. After two years' experimental work, the Hungarian Radio electro-acoustic music studio came into being in 1975 as part of the Hungarian Film Producing Company. During the 1970s the circle of composers began to widen. Many had completed music studies of this sort abroad. However, the originators of the genre in Hungary were the two, already mentioned, composers: Zoltán Pongrácz and Iván Patachich. Pongrácz has been the representative figure of Hungarian electro-acoustic music, and Patachich, though he worked in many genres, the bulk of his works were composed in the studio of Hungarian Radio, with traditional sounds augmented by electro-acoustic experimentation. This collection spans these two artists' output from 1972-1989."
