Electronic music pioneer Morton Subotnick, who, at 77 is active and still working with modular synthesizer he helped design with Don Buchla in the early sixties, had some interesting thoughts to share, recently, on synthesis and his role in the history of the future:
“My future was never the future of music in the direction it was going.
Part of what I was doing was trying to visualize where one could go. I just hoped to get a sense of what that world would be.
I didn’t think it would happen for 100 years.
I didn’t know I would actually get to see it happen.”
Subotnick is featured in an interview in The Wall Street Journal.
