Edgard Varèse

December 22, 1883 - November 6, 1965
born in Paris, France, composed during the Modern period
Edgard Varèse (1883-1965) was a French composer, naturalized as a U.S. citizen in 1926. While his body of works is small, Varèse became one of the most influential of 20th century composers through his concepts of organized sound, his contributions to electronic music, and his work establishing ensembles devoted to performing new music. Ionisation for 13 percussionists is his most famous chamber piece, and his large orchestral works, Arcana and Amériques, are noted for their extensive parts for percussion. Varèse created Poème électronique for tape, a landmark in the field of musique concrète, for the 1958 Brussels World Fair. ~ Blair Sanderson, Rovi

He's one of those people that was so genius you will never see the likes of him again. If you like Varése you should check out Harry Partch, Roger Sessions, David Rosenboom, Iannis Xenakis, John Cage, David Tudor, Moondog, etc etc etc.

Zappafn57, your absolutely right about the influence on Frank Zappa! It is very exciting to hear.
You can positively hear the influence he had on Frank Zappa.
I never knew that Varese wrote so little. I have always like what I heard.
