GYORGY LIGETI - ATMOSPHERES (1960/1) Gyorgy Sandor Ligeti, Transylvania 1923 - Austria 2006. Gyorgy Ligeti was, along with Karlheinz Stockhausen, Iannis Xenakis and Pierre Boulez, one of a group of composers that revolutionised postwar music. Perhaps his most notable, certainly his most famous, piece was Atmospheres from 1960. It is the best known of his micropolyphony/soundscape pieces.
This work featured, along with Ligeti's Requiem and Lux Aeterna, on the soundtrack of Stanley Kubrick's film 2001: A Space Odyssey.
