Morton Subotnick with Lillevan

Morton Subotnick with Lillevan: From Silver Apples of the Moon to A Sky of Cloudless Sulphur IV: LUCY

“When the electronic composer Morton Subotnick released Silver Apples of the Moon, he seemed to be exploring a limitless world.” —The New York Times

Electronic music legend Morton Subotnick performs his seminal work Silver Apples of the Moon (1967), the first album of all-electronic music featuring exotic timbres and dance-inspiring rhythms. Subotnick performs this piece accompanied by his frequent collaborator, video artist Lillevan, along with another groundbreaking work, A Sky of Cloudless SulphurIV (1977), a playful piece made with a mix of Buchla synthesizers and tape recorders. More than a generation ago Subotnick helped to create a new music genre, one that still resonates with contemporary audiences. Seeming simultaneously composed and spontaneously improvised, this immersive performance wraps audiences in a sonic swell of surprising distortions, energetic rhythms and moving meditations.
