Avantgarde, real buddhist music ?

Post by Aemilius » Thu Jan 13, 2011 1:19 pm

My personal experience is that composers like Karlheinz Sockhausen, John Cage, György Ligeti, Penderezky, Iannis Xenakis, Luigi Nono, etc... have something transcendental in their music, and I would say that there is something of buddha-dharma in their music. Whether they attach to it the name "buddhism" or not is beside the point altogether.
See for example the Helicopter String Quartet of Stockhausen
