Anfalov΄s homage to the anti-communist electronic music studio
“The Cold War was a time where the global superpowers divided the world on all fronts: science, technology but also culture” says Hannover-based graphic designer and art director Yevgeniy Anfalov of his recent book “Rotary. History of the studio for electronic music WDR 1951–1981” to It’s Nice That. “I hadn’t seen any contemporary books on this topic, so I decided to begin researching it, thinking about making this lesser-known story more accessible for a broader audience,” he adds.
Born in Kiev, Ukraine Yevgeniy Anfalov moved in 2003 to Germany, where he studied Visual Communication at Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts and graduated in 2012. In 2015–17 he has been studying Art Direction in Master programm at ÉCAL, Lausanne with the major in type design, supervised by François Rappo and Kai Bernau. His graduation book project on history of electronic music "Rotary: Geschichte des Studios für elektronische Musik WDR Köln 1951–81" has obtained an award of excellence.
