 The Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center
Mark Zuckerman took over the Computer Music program in the late 1970s and (at some point) purchased a used Data General Supernova computer and Kennedy tape drive unit (we built a new DAC and filters and the Ampex was brought over from Nevis) and installed them at Prentis to do music conversions.
