Dates of existence
Josef Tal founded the Israel Center for Electronic Music at the Hebrew University, the first such studio in Israel, following a UNESCO research fellowship during which Tal toured many of the major international electronic music studios in 1958. The new studio began development in 1959 following the model of the WDR studio in Cologne, Germany but with Hugh Le Caine's Multi-track (completed in 1961). When Tal retired in 1980, Menachem Zur became the director and remained in this position until the University closed the studio in the 1990s.
