Composers

Biography

Born: October 14, 1935   Country: USA   Period: 20th/21st Centuries
La Monte Young has been described as the first modern minimalist composer and performer. Recordings of his compositions remain somewhat rare and difficult to obtain. His name however emerges in articles and books that delve into the radical post-World War II American experimental music scene. Young is also recognized for introducing drone music to the avant-garde. As with Cage, Feldman and others, his works redefine the nature of what music is.
