David Borden founded Mother Mallard’s Portable Masterpiece Co. in 1969 with the generous support of Robert Moog. The group is credited as the world’s first synthesizer ensemble and received praise from the New York Times at the time: “Mother Mallard turns out some of the best synthesizer music around.” His major work, The Continuing Story of Counterpoint, a twelve-part cycle of pieces for synthesizers, acoustic instruments and voice has been called the “Goldberg Variations of minimalism.” His first composition teachers were jazz musicians Jimmy Giuffre and Jaki Byard. He is the retired founder and Director of the Digital Music Program at Cornell University.
