Lukas Ligeti

Born:

Transcending the boundaries of genre, the Austrian, New-York-City-based composer-percussionist Lukas Ligeti has developed a musical style of his own that draws upon downtown New York experimentalism, contemporary classical music, jazz, electronica, as well as world music, particularly from Africa. Known for his non-conformity and diverse interests, Lukas creates music ranging from the through-composed to the free-improvised, often exploring polyrhythmic/polytempo structures, non-tempered tunings, and non-western elements. Other major sources of inspiration include experimental mathematics, computer technology, architecture and visual art, sociology and politics, and travel

Read "Meeting At The Parting Place" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Primarily inspired by, as he puts it in his liner notes to Meeting at the Parting Place, ..."European concert music from the Renaissance to the 20th Century and jazz, particularly of the '60s and ...

Lukas Ligeti, Thollem McDonas: Imaginary Images

Read "Imaginary Images" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Entrambi prossimi alla cinquantina (Ligeti, figlio di György, la varcherà a giugno), i due performer qui riuniti si confrontano sul terreno della libera improvvisazione, pratica di cui d'altro canto il catalogo Leo pullula. Lo fanno attraverso pezzi tutto sommato brevi (dai tre ai nove minuti), il che--specificatamente in presenza di questa economia di mezzi--non può che ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
