Abstract: The University of Helsinki Music Research Laboratory and Electronic Music Studio is one of the oldest studios and research facilities of its kind in the Nordic countries. Originally named "Ääniteknillinen laboratorio" (Laboratory of sound technology), the studio was the leading electronic music facility in Finland from the early 1960s to the late 1970s. Built and maintained by Erkki Kurenniemi, the studio served also as an important center for the development of electronic musical instruments. In the mid-1980s, the focus of the studio shifted toward research, first in the form of computer music software development and later in various fields of research. In the fall of 2012, the studio celebrated its 50th anniversary. In the same year, the studio moved from its long-time location at Vironkatu 1 to the Topelia building in the historic center of Helsinki. Lately, the studio has gained new interest in the Finnish media, especially through the pioneering work of Kurenniemi. This studio report describes both recent activities and the early history of the studio.
