Title: Peter Kolman a jeho ostrov slobody
Author: Katarína Hašková

Abstract: Peter Kolman and his Isle of Freedom
In 1965 the Experimental Studio of the Czechoslovak Radio in Bratislava was established as one of the new “institutional” forms of avant-garde music in Slovakia. The composer Peter Kolman became its artistic leader and programme director. From the very beginnings he struggled to steer this workplace to the latest trends in electroacoustic music. In the short period of the following years the studio represented a place for independent and autonomous electroacoustic work. The incoming “normalization” in the early 1970s brought a decline in its activities. Paradoxically, despite the opposition of the normalizing power against electroacoustic music, it was namely this Experimental Studio, where music – though “illegally” – was still being created. Although restricted in our country, it represented the acme of Slovak music abroad and was awarded important international prizes and gaining acknowledgement. In the period 1972 – 1976 Peter Kolman himself composed four of his electroacoustic compositions – Lentement mais pas trop, E 15, Poliritmica, and 9 1/2, thus confirming the paradox of this social-political and artistic crisis.
