Lukas Ligeti



An essential member of the experimental and avant-garde music scene in New York, composer and percussionist Lukas Ligeti talks with Jake Nussbaum about his unique poly-rhythmic and non-western pieces. The interview is conducted on the eve of his 50th birthday celebrations in New York, on June 11, 2015 at the Austrian Cultural Forum New York and on June 14, 2015 at Roulette, Brooklyn.

Born June 13, 1965, in Vienna, Ligeti is of Hungarian ancestry and is the son of the noted composer Gy├Ârgy Ligeti. The younger Ligeti's work incorporates elements of jazz, contemporary classical and various world musics. His group, Burkina Electric, brings together electronica and Burkinabe popular music. He has worked with Elliott Sharp, George Lewis, Henry Kaiser and Roy Nathanson.
