SUBOTNICK: The First Buchla 100



Excerpts from SUBOTNICK, a forthcoming documentary on avant-garde electronic music composer Morton Subotnick, now raising funds via Indiegogo:

In 1963, Morton Subotnick and Ramon Sender, the two founders of the San Francisco Tape Music Center, commissioned Don Buchla to create one of the first modular electronic music systems.

The first Buchla 100 series system was completed in 1965, eventually moving to Mills College in 1966, where it remains today.

In April 2017, Subotnick and Sender returned to Mills College to meet with Prof. Maggi Payne, co-director of the Center of Contemporary Music, revisiting the original Buchla 100.
