Henri Pousseur, 1929-2009

We have lost another pioneer. Belgian composer Henri Pousseur passed away last Friday, March 6. Born in 1929, Pousseur was one of the seminal post-WWII composers, working with aleatoric forms, multimedia events, a kaleidoscopic blend of styles. I don't have anything to add beyond what I wrote about him a while back, but he will be missed.
