Julius Eastman

Julius Eastman (October 27, 1940-May 28, 1990) was a African-American composer of minimalist tendencies. His music was among the first to combine minimalist processes with elements of pop music, and he often gave his pieces titles of provocative political intent, such as Evil Nigger and Gay Guerrilla. Eastman\'s music was often written according to what he considered an organic principle by which each new section of a work contained all the information from previous sections, though sometimes the information is taken out at a gradual and logical rate.
