is a classical musician
and early pioneer in electronic music
Born in 1928, he studied at the music university in Cologne
and became aware of the serial processes in large groups of notes rather than individual points.
He suggested that electronic music
gave the means to provide a new way of listening to sound
as events rather than points in a pattern.
, he is primarily known for both sparse, minimalistic
compositions as well as symphonic
-styled productions of overlaid pieces.
Some of his works include:
- Kreuzpiel (1951)
- Zeitmabe (1956)
- Kontakte (1960)
- Momente (1964)
- Mantra (1970)
