Herbert Brün

Herbert Brün (1918-2000) was a composer, pioneer of electronic and computer music, and cybernetician. Born in Berlin, Germany, he left in 1936 to study at the Jerusalem Conservatory, studying composition under Stefan Wolpe. He was later invited by Lejaren Hiller to join the Center for Advanced Computation at the University of Illinois from 1963-64. At the conclusion of this residency Brün joined the faculty of the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, where he taught until his retirement.

The graphic score to Brün’s Floating Hierarchies: Set 3 is featured in the Carole Calo gallery. You can check out his work below.
