Danish composer Else Marie Pade was educated as a pianist at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen. She first studied composition with Vagn Holmboe, and later with Jan Maegaard, from whom she learned twelve-tone technique. In 1954, she became the first Danish composer of electronic and concrete music, working with Pierre Schaeffer, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Pierre Boulez.

Born in Aarhus, and frequently bedridden due to kidney disease, Pade listened to the outside world and created “aural pictures” out of the sounds. These sounds later became the basis of her musical compositions.
