J.K. Randall Mudgett: Monologues by a Mass Murderer, Part I: Electronic Prelude Computer Music: Realized in the Computer Centers of Princeton & Columbia Universities Nonesuch James Kirtland Randall was born in Cleveland and grew up a music prodigy, with the ambition that he would become a famous piano player. When James was 17, a piano sonata that he composed was played at Carnegie Hall by his teacher, Leonard Shure. He got a BA at Columbia University, an MA at Harvard University and an MFA at Princeton (studying with Milton Babbitt.) And he joined Princeton's faculty in 1957. At Princeton, he became a pioneer in electronic music, working from the very early days of punch cards. Music from that time includes Lyric Variations for Violin and Computer, Quartets in Pairs, and Quartersines. Later, he did a great deal of free-wheeling improvisation, then late in life came back to composing for piano (the GAP series) and MIDI (a garland of Midi, My Prayer for Bella). Though Randall's music was mostly heard within the small world of academic music, it occasionally reached a wider audience, for instance on the radio show "Schickele Mix":[4] He also wrote about music, published at first in Perspectives of New Music. Many of his writings took the form of highly experimental prose poems.
