Mother Mallard's Portable Masterpiece Company -- 50th Anniversary

Performance & Music
November 8 & 15
Cornell University, Ithaca Campus
Presented by David Yearsley

The world’s first synthesizer trio was founded in Ithaca in 1969 by David Borden, visionary composer and first master of the epoch-making instrument invented up the lake in Trumansburg by Robert Moog. Given the keys to the Moog workshop, Borden acted as these synthesizers’ first tester. Fifty years later in two concerts at Cornell, the great anatine ensemble returns to the analog to perform Borden’s minimalist masterpiece, the Continuing Story of Counterpoint, on the original synthesizers.
