Dates of existence
The Philips Natuurkundig Laboratorium (Philips Physics Laboratory or NatLab) was part of the Philips research department, founded in 1914 and disbanded in 2001, when its facilities became the High Tech Campus Eindhoven. In 1954, they appointed Dick Raaijmakers (Kid Baltan) to develop instruments and compose music in NatLab's "Room 306". Philips closed the studio in 1960; it eventually became the Institute of Sonology at the Dutch Conservatory.
