Although Ligeti himself did not compose a huge amount of electronic music during his lifetime, he was inspired by the experimental output of such artists as Stockhausen, who would use helicopters, tape recorders, and other synthesised sounds to create groundbreaking work.

In this afternoon talk composition professor Michael Oliva discusses works by Ligeti and his contemporaries and, using recorded examples, explores his contribution to the electronic genre.

Part of Southbank Centre's Ligeti in Wonderland series.
