On the Threshold of Beauty: Philips and the Origins of Electronic Music in the Netherlands 1925–1965  describes a period of music history in which an entirely new world of electronic sounds and compositional attitudes was developed and explored, ranging from avant-garde extremes to the earliest experiments in electronic pop; from the music for the iconic Philips Pavilion at the 1958 World's Fair to electronic soundtracks for film.

The presentation at V2_ is part of the side program of the exhibition Key by Media Technology Leiden.
