Yugoslav Electroacoustic Music before the 1970s: Production and Promotion at Music Biennale Zagreb and the Yugoslav Music Tribune
The establishment of the Electronic Studio Third program at Radio Belgrade (1971) represents beginning of a new period, as well as the institutionalization of electroacoustic music in Yugoslavia. This research will focus on the Music Biennale Zagreb (MBZ), founded in 1961, and the Yugoslav Music Tribune (YMT), founded in 1964 – festivals that have directly caused the progress and great expansion of electroacoustic music production in Yugoslavia. Therefore, on the one hand, this paper gives a brief overview of the often neglected period of the development of Yugoslav electroacoustic music. On the other hand, this study has found that the above-mentioned festivals could be interpreted as the main actors for the popularization of electronic media in Yugoslavian music.
