Pousseur's works included serial music, experimental operas like "Electre" (1961), and electronic music Read more such as "Scambi" (1957). He began his longstanding collaboration with Michel Butor in the early '60s; the duo have gone on to write over 20 works, including "La Rose Des Voix" (1982). Pousseur founded the Centre de recherches et de formation musicales de Wallonie in Liège, the magazine Marsyas, and taught in several countries (but mostly at the University and Conservatory of Liège) until his retirement in 1994. ~ Joslyn Layne Read less
