Last night Morton Subotnick performed his classic 1967 piece Silver Apples Of The Moon, seguing into a premiere performance of Song and Dance, at Michael Schimmel Center for the Arts at Pace University as part of the River to River Festival, presented by Harvestworks and (audience). Augmented and enhanced with psychedelic visuals by Sue.C these mindblowing works were played live by the 79 year old Subotnick on Buchla synthesizer processed thru Ableton Live in four channel quadraphonic sound. Morton’s music sounds as fresh and innovative now as it probably did back in 1967, no-one can touch him! He is incredibly creatively vital.
Mort’s concert was preceded by a four-channel presentation of Orchestra of the Damned by the late Richard Lainhart.
