Giacinto Scelsi

January 8, 1905 - August 9, 1988
born in La Spezia, Italy, composed during the Modern period
Giacinto Scelsi (1905-1988) was an Italian composer who chose a path separate from all modernist movements and created music of a highly intuitive, mystical nature. A breakdown caused Scelsi to reassess his music, and from the 1950s on he composed in an intensely focused manner, often through improvisations that were later set to paper. His Four Pieces, Each on a Single Note is typical of his minimalist style, and several other works feature the same obsessive use of isolated pitches with slight variations over static harmonic backgrounds. Scelsi used a circle over a horizontal line as his symbol, in lieu of a portrait. ~ Blair Sanderson, Rovi

a lot of film makers have set his music to eerie or scary scenes... which is not really good, in my opinion, as it cheapens music to a caricature of something else. same kind of thing happened to ravel and debussy and impressionis t i c music... people hear the impressionis t s and they think 50's dishwasher commercial. scelci, I think, won't come to that though, his stuff is so out there ;)
As esoteric as this is, I really dig this stuff. It reminds me of times when I listen to different neighbors mowing their lawns and it almost forms chords and music in some kind of John Cage way.
i think i'd use the adjective "haunting" - it has appeal, though i think an evening full of this would be... challenging!
He does have a rather peculiar minimalist style. It's kind of enchanting.
