Earlier this year, American electronic music pioneer Morton Subotnick revisited his seminal 1967 record, Silver Apples of the Moon, at the David Rubenstein Atrium as part of the annual Unsound Festival, followed by a lecture at the Greenwich House Music School. The seventy-eight-year-old L.A.-born maestro will be back at the school on Thursday night, discussing the convergence of technology and music in the 1960s and playing selections from Silver Apples. The lecture-performance will be followed by a reception with the public. The event kicks off the twenty-sixth season of North River Music, the experimental music series founded by Frank Wigglesworth. On May 3, Subotnick will be back to look at the state of electronic music and his career from 1973 to the present; other events include Deviant Septet on December 15, Ne(x)tworks: Music Without Dance on February 25-26, loadbang on March 8, Zentripetal on May 10, and Taka Kigawa on June 7.
