Profile:
George Antheil (July 8, 1900, Trenton, New Jersey - February 12, 1959, New York City) was an American avant-garde composer, pianist, author and inventor.

In 1923 Antheil moved to Paris, where he had the support of many influential friends, among them his idol Igor Stravinsky, James Joyce, Ernest Hemingway and Man Ray.

His inventions included a patented torpedo guidance system and a broad-spectrum signal transmission system which then was called frequency skipping, co-authored with actress Hedy Lamarr.

He wrote his autobiography Bad Boy of Music in 1944, issued the following year by Doubleday.
