The Com­put­er Music Stu­dio of the Fry­deryk Chopin Uni­ver­si­ty of Music has worked since 1990 (attached to the FCUM’s Chair of Com­po­si­tion). It was found­ed at the ini­tia­tive of prof. Włodz­imierz Kotońs­ki, who was its first head and who for many years taught the sub­ject of Elec­tron­ic Music. The result of prof. Kotoński’s teach­ing activ­i­ty at the Stu­dio is the mono­graph enti­tled Muzy­ka Elek­tron­icz­na [Elec­tron­ic Music] which he wrote and which still remains the only text­book for this sub­ject avail­able in Pol­ish. In 2016, the Stu­dio was named after Włodz­imierz Kotońs­ki.

Per­sons deal­ing with teach­ing and com­po­si­tion-relat­ed super­vi­sion over the work car­ried out at the Stu­dio since 1990 were: Włodz­imierz Kotońs­ki, Edward Sielic­ki and Krzysztof Cza­ja, and in 1994 Marcin Wierzbic­ki joined this group. Cur­rent­ly, these per­sons are: Andrzej Kopeć, Bar­bara Okoń-Makows­ka, Woj­ciech Błaże­jczyk, Sła­womir Woj­ciechows­ki and Jan Duszyńs­ki, and the man­age­r­i­al func­tion is held by Dar­iusz Przy­byl­s­ki.

Artis­tic achieve­ments of the Stu­dio cov­er over 200 com­po­si­tions pro­duced by the FCUM stu­dents and grad­u­ates and oth­er cre­ators col­lab­o­rat­ing with the Stu­dio, as well as par­tic­i­pants of com­po­si­tion com­pe­ti­tions organ­ised as part of the Studio’s activ­i­ty.

Since its very begin­ning, the Stu­dio has annu­al­ly organ­ised at least one con­cert pre­sent­ing its lat­est pro­duc­tions and co-organ­ised artis­tic events, com­pe­ti­tions and aca­d­e­m­ic con­fer­ences.
