More Info

"Musique concrete around a glacier in New Zealand. Smalley was born 1946 in Nelson, New Zealand. He learned piano and organ at a young age. In his home country, he premiered works for organ by Olivier Messiaen and Gyrgy Ligeti in the late '60s. He taught music at Wellington College for three years before the French Government awarded him a grant in 1971. He studied in Messiaen's composition class for a year at the Conservatoire de Paris, but he also took the electro-acoustic music course dispensed at the time by the Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM). Musique concrte was a revelation to him and he quickly turned away from performance and classical composition to concentrate solely on tape music." [label info]
