A bad week for fans of electronic music:

Luc Ferrari is dead

    Originally posted by article
    French composer Luc Ferrari is dead, monday August 22d, in Arezzo Italy. Luc Ferrari was born in 1929 in Paris. He studied with Arthur Honegger et Olivier Messiaen and at Darmstadt in Germany. As director of the Groupe de Recherche Musicale from 1959 to 1960, he worked closely with Pierre Schaeffer, who coined the term "musique concrète. Luc Ferrari also founded in 1981 "la muse en circuit" creation center.



Before the days of Kraftwerk, folks like Luc Ferrari really paved the way for artists to use the medium. He was highly influential in both pop and art music circles - and one of the last line of "traditional" composers linked to the old school via Olivier Messiaen.

With the passing of Xenakis in 2001, there aren't many of the folks still left. God, I'm just the bearer of bad news this week.
