Edgard Varèse (Composer)

Born: 22nd December 1883, Paris

Died: 6th November 1965, New York

Nationality: French

Edgard Victor Achille Charles Varèse was a French-born composer who spent the greater part of his career in the United States.

Varèse's music emphasizes timbre and rhythm. He coined the term "organized sound" in reference to his own musical aesthetic. Varèse's conception of music reflected his vision of "sound as living matter" and of "musical space as open rather than bounded". He conceived the elements of his music in terms of "sound-masses", likening their organization to the natural phenomenon of crystallization.
