Herb Schneider studied in Bebek, Turkey, and in the U.S. He joined Bell Telephone Laboratories (Murray Hill, N.J., U.S.) while still a university student. Schneider spent close to 42 years with the company, where he focused primarily on research into wireless broadcasting. For 9 Evenings
, he acted as an intermediary among the participants (engineers and artists) during the creation of the performances. After extensive discussions with each of the artists in September 1966, he translated their ideas into diagrams, in a technical language the engineers would understand (these diagrams were reproduced in the 9 Evenings program
). Schneider also suggested using AMP Equipment
, a command console that linked the technological components used on stage to one another.
