LUC FERRARI

WRITTEN BY
Andy Beta

This French electronic composer's magnetic tape wizardry took a distinct path between melody and noise in the 1960s, creating ethereal yet evocative compositions that eschewed the trappings of academia so as to sound like child's play — like the time he mashed up Stravinsky and Beethoven. He could also be a dirty old man, as his licentious 1973 piece "Danses Organiques" proved, putting the sounds of Sapphic lovers against a prepared tape piece. Abstract AnCo moments like "Loch Raven" and "Wastered" which melt acoustic sounds into electronics hearken back to his work.
