"Composer-percussionist Lukas Ligeti is developing a style of music uniquely his own, drawing upon Downtown New York experimentalism, contemporary classical music, jazz, electronica, as well as world music, particularly from Africa.... Oblivious to categorizations such as “classical”, “pop”, etc., Lukas' main interests include cultural exchange, new forms of interplay between musicians in an ensemble, polyrhythms/polytempo structures, and non-tempered tunings, and his music ranges from the through-composed to the free-improvised. Other major sources of inspiration include experimental mathematics, computer technology, architecture and visual art, sociology and politics, and traveling.... His concert music has been commissioned by Bang on a Can, the Vienna Festwochen, Ensemble Modern, Kronos Quartet, Colin Currie and HÃ¥kan Hardenberger, the American Composers Forum, New York University, ORF Austrian Broadcasting Company, Radio France, and many others; he has also composed for dance, film, and installation." ----http://www.myspace.com/lukasligeti
