Electronic music pioneer, Dick Robinson, will be presenting a Concert of Electroacoustic Music April 26, 2015 from 2 to 4 PM at Sycamore Place Gallery, 120 Sycamore Place, Decatur, GA 30030 (Donation $10-20).

Robinson joined the Atlanta Symphony in the 1950s as a violinist but his first love has always been electronic sounds and live improvisation. A student of Bob Moog, Hugh LeCaine, Charles Dodge, Kurt Hebel, and Carla Scaletti and good friend of Pauline Oliveros, Robinson was the first US composer to get a Kyma system. Robinson has always been inspired by visual artists and physicists (quantum theorist David Finkelstein is a longtime friend and inspiration).

An unrepentant avant-gardist, Robinson has an infectious laugh and joie de vivre, saying of his music, “I’ve always improvised, and have collaborated since the ‘70s without the thought of anything more than having fun.” It’s a sense of fun that quickly spreads to the audience during his performances!
