Lou Harrison

May 14, 1917 - February 2, 2003
born in Portland, OR, composed during the Contemporary period
Lou Harrison (1917-2003) was the quintessential California composer, blending Western music with Pacific rim cultures, Asian, and other indigenous influences; investigating alternative tuning systems; and building an Indonesian gamelan out of spare parts. Friend to John Cage and Harry Partch and student of Henry Cowell and Arnold Schoenberg, Harrison permanently settled in Northern California after an attempt to make it in New York City failed in 1947. Harrison's enormous body of work is regarded as an important whole, rather than for its few repertory "hits" such as Harrison's Canticle No. 3 (1942). Harrison's work for percussion ensemble is considered central to the literature. ~ Uncle Dave Lewis , Rovi

Comments

truly one of the greatest composers of all time. i will miss his continued contribution s to the world of music.
genius of cabrillo college-its all about the melody...
i used to be wild abot his gamelean stuff-now its his amazing harpischord composistion s with burman that are driving me mad !
genius-his melodies are heartbreakin g - i was shaken when he died.
All true. What is not true is that Lou Harrison was the brother of Burl Ives and that he did not play the part of Kris Kringle in "Miracle on 34th Street".

Great composer!!
A great American treasure, virtually unknown outside academic circles. Lou brought a child-like sense of experimentat i o n to his acute sense of musicality. This piece is beautiful - truly "contemporar y " without being "electronic" .
nice.
amazing
Thank you.
