RIP Ivo Malec

Coming from a rather ‘classical’ background, he met Pierre Schaeffer whom he considers his ‘true and only master’; Schaeffer’s teachings turned Malec into one of the most important leaders of the Groupe de recherches musicales. Since then he dedicated himself to a more radical style.

Malec’s approach to composition which in ways is similar to that of Denis Dufour or Xenakis is the emphasis on all aspects of sound including texture, density, movement, timbre and notably sonic character and form and the use of sound objects.
