Composer. Born in Los Angeles, California, he was a piano player with an avant-garde approach composing pieces for percussion groups which pushed the boundaries of music. He was most noted for composing the piano piece titled "4' 33" (1952). His other works included "Imaginary Landscape #3" (1942), "Variations I and II" (1958) and "Thirty Pieces for Five Orchestras" (1981). He became known outside the art world in the 1960s as an influence on pop culture and rock music and continued to lecture and compose until his death.
