FerruccioFerrucio Busoni, a piano virtuoso was a successor to Liszt, and the superior of Rachmaninoff and Paderewski. Busoniprophet of electronic music - ".....one day, it seemed clear to me that the full flowering of music is frustrated by our instruments ....in their range, their tone, what they can render, our instruments are chained fast and their hundred chains must also bind the composer" 

Pierre Schaeffer Pierre Schaeffer received his diploma from: L'Ecole Polytechnique in France, was the first to loop music!- Inventor of Musique Concrete - engineer and broadcaster had profound effect on music!

Edgard Varese - Varese "refused to submit to sounds that have already been heard". Some of his friends included: Picasso, Duchamp, Lenin Trotsky, Russolo, and many more!
inspired by Busoni and Debussey -
"I long for instruments obedient to my thought and whim, with their contribution of a whole new world of unsuspected sounds, which will lend themselves to the exigencies of my inner rhythm"

Frank Zappa - Zappa was inspired by Varese, and almost got to meet him!thoughts on Varese
