In 1955, Harry Olson and Herbert Belar complete their work on the first music synthesizer at the RCA laboratories at Princeton, N.J.. It quickly became of interest to musicians and composers, revolutionizing music. Olson publishes the work in an article entitled RCA Electronic Music Synthesizer in January 1955. Called the RCA Mark I Sound Synthesizer, the invention was to research sound properties, and was later moved to the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center.
