Gordon Mumma (March 30, 1935, Framingham, MA, USA) is an American composer who attented the School of Music (1952–53) and Institute of Science and Technology (1959–62) of the University of Michigan and studied composition, piano and the horn privately. Mumma co-founded and worked with the Cooperative Studio for Electronic Music in Ann Arbor (1958–66) and the ONCE Group (1960–68). Mumma also collaborated with Milton Cohen's Space Theater in Ann Arbor (1957–64) and in New York with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company (1966–74) and the Sonic Arts Union (from 1966). His reputation was founded.
Edgard Victor Achille Charles Varèse (French: ; also spelled Edgar Varèse; December 22, 1883 – November 6, 1965) was a French-born composer who spent the greater part of his career in the United States. He coined the term "organized sound" in reference to his own musical aesthetic. Varèse's conception of music reflected his vision of "sound as living matter" and of "musical space as open rather than bounded".
Mario Davidovsky (born March 4, 1934) is an Argentine-American composer. Born in Argentina, he emigrated in 1960 to the US, where he lives today. He is best known for his series of compositions called Synchronisms, which in live performance incorporate both acoustic instruments and electroacoustic sounds played from a tape. Davidovsky was born in Médanos, Buenos Aires Province, Argentina, a town nearly 600 km southwest of the city of Buenos Aires and close to the seaport of Bahía Blanca.

Davidovsky encountered Edgard Varèse, Bulent Arel, and Vladimir Ussachevsky in his early years on the faculty at Columbia University working with them and Babbitt in developing the techniques and idioms that would dominate electronic music during the following decade. Chinary Ung, a native Cambodian, studied with Chou Wen-Chung and Davidovsky at Columbia in the Sixties. Like Davidovsky, his musical training was already quite advanced by the time of his arrival in the United States. All three trios were written for the ensemble; Spiral and Trio in Memoriam were commissioned for Aequalis by the Massachusetts Council on the Arts and Humanities. In each of the trios, the unusually varied timbral and articulative resources of the group are used to create large ensemble effects that are often reinforced by the long overlapping reverberations of various gongs, cymbals, and other metal instruments.
Gordon Mumma (born 30 March 1935, in Framingham, Massachusetts) studied piano and horn in Chicago and Detroit, and began his career as an active horn player in symphonic and chamber music. From 1953 to 1966 he lived in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where he co-founded with Robert Ashley the Cooperative Studio for Electronic Music and the now-historic ONCE Festivals of Contemporary Music.
Varèse and Davidovsky became close friends, and when Varèse died in 1965, Davidovsky dedicated his Electronic Study No. 3 to him. Davidovsky continued to compose electroacoustic music until the mid-1970s, when he turned to writing music to be played solely on traditional instruments, including voice. As noted by Crumb, electroacoustic music has had an effect on the larger tradition, and certainly in Davidovsky's non-electronic music the effects are clear: much attention is given to the quality of attack, sustain, and decay of the instruments, which requires special skill of the performer.

"In Memoriam Edgar Varèse" used with permission of Marks Music Corp. This magnetic tape composition was done in the tape studios of the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center. In contrast to "Horn," this composition was done directly on magnetic tape with each sound created and controlled entirely by the composer in the tape studio.

"Horn" is a live-performance electronic "chance" composition. The sound source is a french horn fitted with a special mute containing a microphone. The sounds from the microphone are fed to two cybersonic consoles (transistorized sound modifiers). The consoles are operated by two performers who determine the continuity of the work during each performance, according to conditions specified by the computer. Thus, the composition changes at each performance.
