20th Century composers and their influence of music.
A blog around 20th Century composers and their influence of music.
This blog is dedicated to explore, understand and show the impact of 20th century classical composers in our times. How they changed classical music, how they experimented and how they inspired others after them.
This blog will also focus on electronic music composers from the 50’s until today and how they influenced classical music with the use of computers, synthesizers and other electronic devices.
Electronic music composers of the 20th century like Steve Reich and Karlheinz Stockhausen changed classical music. Their influence was moving away from the traditional classical music which focused on melody, harmony, rhythm and form.
The new music is considered to be less emotional and more intellectual. This blog is about the 20th Century composers and their influence on music.
We are exploring the artists that have influenced music history, with a focus on electronic music composers and their impact. We will be looking at the 20th Century composers who were often way ahead of their time.
From our research we have discovered that there was a lot going on at the time, so it is impossible to cover all of it here. However, we will look in more depth at some of the key players, and how they changed classical music forever.
There are many 20th-century composers who were important in creating electronic music and changing classical music forever. Some of their names you may recognize, some you may not, but all helped shape what we now know as electronic music today.
Let’s begin with Percy Grainger. He was born in 1882 and died in 1961. He was an Australian composer, pianist and conductor. What he is most famous for is his innovative work on free music (in which he did not use a musical score) and on electronic instruments such as the Ondes Martenot (also known as the Ondioline).
20th Century Electronic Music Composers is a blog written by an electronic music enthusiast. It focuses on the creation of music through the use of electronics and computers in the 20th century. The blog discusses several 20th century composers who were influential to electronic music, including Karlheinz Stockhausen, Gyorgy Ligeti and Edgard Varese.
The 20th century was a particularly turbulent period in the history of classical music. This can be attributed to the fact that composers began to be less interested in what went before them and more interested in new things, sometimes as a reaction to the past. This was not necessarily a bad thing; after all, even though there have been some great works from the past, it is important for composers to break with the past and create their own unique style of music. In this article we will take a look at some of these composers, and how they changed classical music forever.
Some of the composers that we consider to be innovators for the 20th century are Debussy, Ravel, Satie, Schoenberg, Bartok, Stravinsky and Cage. The innovations that these composers brought to classical music have been extremely influential in defining what classical music is today. Some of these innovations included:
The use of chromaticism (using chords with notes that are not part of the key) in order to create a sense of tension and drama. Chromaticism is often used by many modern day popular musicians but it has never been used so extensively as it was by these great composers.
The use of dissonance (a clash between

As we enter the 2nd decade of the 21st century, we should take a look back at how music has changed in the last couple hundred years. Music has changed from a classical genre to a now popular music scene that includes genres such as rock, pop, r&b, and hip-hop. These different genres have each brought something new to music and have impacted society in different ways. Classical music was the main genre of music during the Baroque period and was centered around Europe. Inventors like Ludwig von Beethoven, Franz Schubert, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Frederic Chopin, Robert Schumann are among some of the most influential composers of this time period. As they were creating these pieces they innovated new ways to make music and explored new instruments.
Music is constantly changing with new genres being born every year and old ones dying out. The first electronic instrument to be created was the Telharmonium which was created by Thaddeus Cahill in 1897. Electronic instruments are instruments that use electronics to create sound through vibration or amplification of sound. Some examples of electronic instruments include synthesizers and drum machines. A synthesizer is an instrument made up of oscillators and filters that can be used to create different sounds
