Douglas Lilburn

Douglas Lilburn (1915-2001) has been described as the "grandfather of New Zealand music" having worked in both conventional classical styles as well as pioneering electro-acoustic music in New Zealand. In 1966, Lilburn founded the Victoria University of Wellington Electronic Music Studio and was its director until 1979, a year before his retirement. Having written a considerable body of music for conventional acoustic instruments, he rejected the medium and used the studio for the creation of wholly electronic works.
