Lou Cohen - Music 3CD 25091
3 CD set of works by electronic music composer/performer Lou Cohen. Most of these pieces were composed by means of algorithmic and stochastic processes, with emphasis on granular synthesis. Cohen's compositions from 1960 to 1990 were written for a range of instrumental ensembles, and generally algorithmically employed 12-tone and serial techniques. A few of these pieces used open score and chance processes as well. Starting around 1990, Cohen switched to composing using computer-generated sounds and software-computed structures. The programmable synthesizer Csound has been the primary tool for this work along with software of his own design.
