Throughout the 20th century there was always very close collaboration between Lviv poets, musicians and painters. Initially this collaboration have been expressed only by the joint participation in the creative groups (Moloda muza, ANUM, ARTES). Later it turned into a search for synthetic arts where sound and visual space are inextricably linked. When Eugene Slabchenko works on experimental audiovisual compositions in Paris, idea of musical experiments with graphics slowly grow in Lviv and after II WW was highlighted in the graphical scores by Roman Haubenstock-Ramati.
