Présentation de José Maceda
Extrait de la page wikipédia :
José Maceda (January 31, 1917 - May 5, 2004) was a Filipino composer and ethnomusicologist.
Maceda was born in Manila, the Philippines. He studied piano, composition and musical analysis at École Normale de Musique de Paris. After returning to his native country, he became a professional pianist. Later, he also studied musicology at Columbia University, and anthropology at Northwestern University. Starting in 1952, he conducted fieldwork on ethnic musics in the Philippines. From about 1954, he was involved in the research and composition of musique concrète. In 1958, he worked at a recording studio in Paris which specialized in musique concrète. During this period, he met Pierre Boulez, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Iannis Xenakis. In 1963, Maceda earned a doctorate in ethnomusicology from the UCLA. He began pursuing a compositional career more vigorously. At the same time, he held concerts in Manila until 1969, in which he performed and conducted. This series of concerts introduced Boulez, Xenakis and Edgard Varèse to the Filipinos.
