Notes & Reviews:

The music of George Cacioppo (1927-1984) is important in the history of 20th century music composition as the missing link between the American "sound based" music of the 1960s with the "sound centered" music of Giacinto Scelsi and his disciples, the French spectral composers, Tristan Murail and Gerard Grisey. Critical of serial music and academicism's failure to take into account the nature of sound itself, Cacioppo was inspired by radical composers such as Varese, Cage and Feldman, and produced the American equivalent of the "sound centered" compositions of Giacinto Scelsi in Italy.
