In 1980, George Lewis put together a summer series of workshops, which he called “The Compser/Peformer Today.” This would be, according to George, “one of the most challenging, wide-ranging summer programs offered anywhere.”
One of the composer/performer workshop leaders was Richard Teitelbaum, about whom George said:
“Perhaps the leading exponent of the art of improvisation with the voltage controlled synthesizer, Mr. Teiltelbaum performs regularly with his beautiful-sounding Moog instrument, which was built by Robert Moog himself. As cofounder of the highly influential Musica Elettronica Viva (MEV), Mr Teitelbaum helped to reshape the relationship of electronics to live instrumentalists.”
As far as I can tell, Richard is still teaching at Bard College, which is right across the Hudson river from Woodstock. The website for him at Bard is quite out of date now, but there’s still lots of good information on his background and his output.
One thing I just discovered about him is that he studied piano with Edith Oppens, mother of Ursula Oppens, who also was a CMS guiding artist.
