Gavin Bryars

January 16, 1943 -
born in Goole, Yorkshire, England, composed during the Contemporary period
Gavin Bryars (born in 1943) is one of the most versatile British composers to emerge in the second half of the 20th century. He began his career playing double bass, but in the 1960s began composing in the experimental, conceptual tradition of John Cage.

He has gone on to develop a large body of lyrical work in traditional forms, such as choral, orchestral, chamber music, and opera. ~ Stephen Eddins, Rovi
