Morton Subotnick is one of the foremost pioneers in electronic music and an innovator in works involving instruments and other media, including interactive computer music systems. Subotnick co-founded the legendary San Francisco Tape Center (now the Center for Contemporary Music at Mills) and his seminal work Silver Apples of the Moon [1966-7], marked the first time an original large-scale composition had been created specifically for the disc medium – a conscious acknowledgment that the home stereo system constituted a present-day form of chamber music. Tonight he presents works for laptop as well as debuting the latest version of his music software developed for children’s classrooms and after school programs.
