Experimental composer Milton Babbitt died in Princeton, New Jersey on Saturday at the age of 94. Babbitt had been a founding member of the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center. I have been interested in electronic music since I was very young. The music produced at the Columbia-Princeton center later was a big influence.
