david tudor Along with John Cage, David Tudor is one of the central figures in the post-World War II American music scene. Tudor became known both as a highly virtuoso pianist and longtime musical director of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company and for his home-made-electronics. He had already begun experimenting with electronic sound generators and instruments for sound modulation in the late 1950s. Unlike many of his colleagues, Tudor developed and built his own sound generators and modulators and used them on stage in his live performances. Today, Tudor is considered the founder of "live electronics." Tudor collaborated with many artists: with choreographer Merce Cunningham or with visual artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Marcel Duchamp, Jackie Matisse and others.
