Moondog (2)

Moondog (2)

Real Name:
Louis Thomas Hardin
Profile:
Revered pioneer on the avant-garde/minimalist scene, usually within the jazz realm. His revolutionary attitude towards composition and melody was lauded by such eminent contemporaries as Philip Glass and Steve Reich, while his style and attitude drew comparisons to Harry Partch. His influence can be seen in the music of Stereolab and Moonshake among many others.

Moondog wrote all his music in braille having lost his sight in an accident involving a dynamite cap at the age of 17.

Born May 26, 1916 in Marysville, Kansas; died September 8, 1999 in Münster, Germany.
