Morton Subotnick & Lillevan (US)
Morton Subotnick is one of the pioneers in the development of electronic music and multi-media performance and an innovator in works involving instruments and other media, including interactive computer music systems. Most of his music calls for a computer part, or live electronic processing; his oeuvre utilizes many of the important technological breakthroughs in the history of the genre. His work Silver Apples of the Moon 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.Lillevan is a well-known video artist, live performer and co-founded the visual audio group Rechenzentrum (Berlin, 1997–2008). Lillevan’s performances, DVD releases, collaborations, and solo works have been acclaimed by critics and audiences alike, taking visual music, animation, bricolage, and film manipulation to new levels.
