The arts revival following World War II increased institutional support for the development of electronic music. In Europe two broadcasting networks, Radiodiffusion Télévision Française (RTF) in Paris, and Norwestdeutscher Rundfunk (NWDR) in Cologne, took up the initiative. Movements toward new paths in musical composition during the second half of the century tended, at least initially, to polarize around select groups of activists with a strongly defended identity, and these studios were no exception. This chapter focuses on the Paris group, which became dedicated to the advancement of musique concrète, and its pioneer Pierre Schaeffer.
