Tony Conrad Biography (Wikipedia)
Anthony Schmalz "Tony" Conrad (March 7, 1940 – April 9, 2016) was an American avant-garde video artist, experimental filmmaker, musician, composer, sound artist, teacher and writer. Active in a variety of media since the early 1960s, he was a pioneer of both structural film and drone music (or, as he has qualified, "The first non-bagpipe western drone music").
Support for Conrad's work came from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, the State University of New York, The Rockefeller Foundation, and the New York Foundation for the Arts.
