Well known for his pioneering work in live electronic music and his early explorations of intercultural improvisation and composition, Teitelbaum received his Master’s degree in theory and composition from Yale University in 1964. He co-founded the pioneering live electronic music group Musica Elettronica Viva (MEV) with Frederic Rzewski and Alvin Curran in Rome in 1966, bringing the first Moog synthesizer to Europe the following year. He returned to the United States in 1970 to create the World Band, one of the first intercultural improvisation groups which were made up of master musicians from India, Japan, Korea, the Middle East and North America. He has performed his works at Berlin’s Philharmonic Hall, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Almeida Theater and South Bank in London, the Pompidou Center in Paris, the Kennedy Center in Washington, and in concerts and festivals throughout Europe, North America, East Asia and Latin America.
Teitelbaum is currently professor of music at Bard College, in upstate New York, where he teaches electronic and experimental music, and co-chairs the Music Department in the Master of Fine Arts program.
