He co-founded the pioneering live electronic music group Musica Elettronica Viva with Frederic Rzewski and Alvin Curran in Rome in 1966, bringing the first Moog synthesizer to Europe the following year. He returned to the United States in 1970 to create the World Band, one of the first intercultural improvisation groups which were made up of master musicians from India, Japan, Korea, the Middle East and North America.
