about

Tony Conrad is an American avant-garde video artist, experimental filmmaker, musician/composer, sound artist, teacher and writer. Support for Conrad’s work has come from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, the State University of New York, The Rockefeller Foundation, and the New York Foundation for the Arts. Conrad is a graduate of Harvard University (A.B., 1962, major Mathematics). In 1960 Tony Conrad went Copenhagen to his friend who was a research mathematician and was working on a computer project at Physics Chemist Institute there. That computer was the only computer at that time in Denmark with a memory of 8 Kilobyte. Conrad was an early member of the Theatre of Eternal Music, nicknamed The Dream Syndicate, which included John Cale, Angus MacLise, La Monte Young, and Marian Zazeela, and utilized just intonation and sustained sound (drones) to produce what the group called “dream music”.
