La Monte Young

(born Bern, Idaho, 1935) Young grew up and studied in Los Angeles and Berkeley. He moved to New York on a university traveling fellowship to study at the New School for Social Research, and directed the first loft-concert series with Yoko Ono in 1960–1961. Young edited the proto-Fluxus publication, An Anthology of Chance Operations, designed by George Maciunas, in 1962. From 1963 to the present, Young has collaborated with painter and calligrapher Marian Zazeela on site-specific sound and light environments called "Dream Houses," featuring his continuous drone music.
