See the site where the room-sized RCA Mark II Synthesizer has stood since 1959, when it helped establish a fabled electronic-music center. Terry Pender, associate director of the current Columbia Computer Music Center, will talk about the Mark II (no longer operable) and some of the center’s archives, including working Serge and Buchla synthesizers.
