Today’s doodle was created by Berlin-based illustrator Henning Wagenbreth.
Google’s doodles are known for praising individuals, moments, and things. Today the organization is celebrating the 66th anniversary of a piece of music history. Based at the West German Broadcasting office in Cologne, Germany, the Studio for Electronic Music invited in artists and makers from around the globe amid the second half of the 20th century. The celebrated logo has been changed into a bright liveliness of the Studio for Electronic Music, the spearheading studio that blended electronically combined sounds into another kind of music.
“The concept for a studio to create electronic music was birthed by composers Werner Meyer-Eppler, Robert Beyer, and Herbert Eimert, who for years had brainstormed the technical requirements of the challenge,” explained Google. “Artists in the studio created breakthrough beats, editing and mixing sounds using new types of equipment and technical composition. Composers and producers came from far and wide as the studio became a breeding ground for musical innovation.”
With a Google doodle celebrating Hip-Hop in the past and now one for electronic music, music lovers are holding their breath in anticipation of the next Google doodle created to celebrate music – and rightly so!
