Personal Fact of Edgard Varese

Edgard Victor Achille Charles Varese was a French-born composer who spent most of his career in America. He is best remembered for his experimentation with electronic musical instruments. He has been termed as The Father of Electronic Music because it was he who not only saw the potential in using electronic mediums to produce sound, but also invented several new instruments and electronic resources for use in music production.

Besides composing music of his own, he used to promote performances of work by other musicians of his time as well. He founded the International Composers Guild in 1921, an organization which premiered the works of many famous composers such as Bela Bartok, Henry Dixon Cowell, Francis Poulenc, and Anton Webern. He also founded the Pan-American Association of Composers in 1926. Varese made a lot of attempts to redefine music and was successful to a great extent.

He also inspired several other well-known musicians like Chou Wen-chung, a Chinese-born composer, who had met Varese in the United States. Not only he became Varese’s student, but he also assisted Varese in several of his works, as well as edited and completed many of his works after his death. Many other aspiring musicians were also taught and inspired by Varese. He was described by American writer Henry Miller as The Stratospheric Colossus of Sound.
