“The ‘founding father’ of electronica.” –BBC

Pioneering American electronic music composer and NYU faculty member Morton Subotnick presents a rare concert celebrating the 50th anniversary of his groundbreaking record Silver Apples of the Moon, the first electronic album ever to be commissioned by a classical record label. Often called the “founding father” of electronica, Subotnick’s work “Silver Apples” has become a modern classic and was recently entered into the National Registry of Recorded works at the Library of Congress. Only 300 recordings throughout the entire history of recordings have been chosen.
