Style Focus: Composer: Edgard Varese

Style Focus: Composer: Edgard Varese

A very interesting composer who I first discovered through his work for Le Corbusier

'...I decided to call my music "organized sound" and myself, not a musician, but a "worker in rhythms, frequencies and intensities." Indeed, to stubbornly conditioned ears, anything new in music has always been called noise. But after all what is music but organized noises? And a composer, like all artists, is an organizer of disparate elements. Subjectively, noise is any sound one doesn't like'.
