P. Dusapin
Pascal Dusapin (29/05/1955), a French composer, born in Nancy. He counts as one of the senior figures in the world of contemporary French music. When he was a featured composer at an Almeida Festival in the 1980s, it was under the banner of an atavistic school of French composers whose figureheads were Varse and Xenakis and whose unifying stylistic manner was a kind of wild primitivism arrived at by means of sophisticated calculation.
