Combines Western progressive tradition with African and Asian elements. Known as a maverick, pushing each piece to a stylistic extreme so that characteristic patterns have become clear only over a long timeframe.
Primarily an orchestral and inctrumental composer, often exploring microtonal and other non-standard performance approaches; some electronic work for dance, some music theatre, and a number of vocal and choral pieces.
