Morton Subotnick, a pioneering developer of electronic music, will present a free lecture in the Kohl Building's Clonick Hall from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, November 15. Sponsored by Oberlin's TIMARA program, Subotnick's northeast Ohio visit is made possible by a collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Cleveland.

Subotnick will give a public performance at MOCA Cleveland on Thursday, November 14, at 8 p.m. This concert is Subotnick’s only performance in the region, and will be presented in MOCA's intimate performing space.
