Earle Brown was born in Lunenburg, Massachusetts, on December 26, 1926. He studied mathematics and engineering at Northeastern University, and attended the Schillinger House School of Music for techniques of composition and orchestration. Mr. Brown has been a major force in contemporary music since the early 1950's. His work at that time with new notations, scoring methods, and performance attitudes led to his development of graphic, improvisational, and "open-form" scores such as DECEMBER 1952 (from his collection of FOLIO), TWENTY-FIVE PAGES (1953) for one to twenty-five pianos, as well as the later orchestral scores AVAILABLE FORMS I and II (1961 and 1962).
