Luc Ferrari (1929-2005)
was a student of Alfred Cortot, Arthur Honegger and Olivier Messiaen and as a member of Groupe de Recherches Musicales he worked closely with Pierre Schaeffer. In his artistic work he often used electronics, improvisation and multimedia. His legacy includes orchestral (Histoire du plasir et de la désolation, Tautologos 4), chamber (Visage II, Sexolidad, Symhponie dechireé), electronic (Tautologos I, Hétérozygote) and multimedia (Allo, ici la terre or “opéra parlé” Cahiers du soir) works. In his oeuvre and comments on it he revealed his left-wing views, represented, for instance, by the Société I-V cycle.
