Some of the earliest electronic recordings were produced, in the late '50s and early '60s, by Netherlands-based composers/keyboardists Tom Dissevelt and technician Kid Baltran (born: Dick Raaijmakers). Their 1957 debut album, Song of the Second Moon, included the groundbreaking electronic composition "Sonik Re-entry." Although they continued to collaborate on an album, Glas, in 1958 and a 7" single, Electronic Movements, in 1959, Dissevelt had replaced Baltran with another technician when he recorded his 1964 album, Fantasy in Orbit. Dissevelt's subsequent solo compositions were compiled and released as Intersection: Orchestra and Tape Electronics. In the early 2000s Dissevelt was working on a CD overview of Dutch popular and applied electronic music from 1956 to 1966.
