Otto Clarence Luening (1900-1996), along with Vladimir Ussachevsky, was the American pioneer of electronic music. Luening and Ussachevsky's collaborations were first presented in 1952 at an historic concert at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Both men worked to establish what would become one of the most significant electronic music facilities in the United States, the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center.
