Kenneth Gaburo (July 5, 1926 in Somerville, New Jersey; - January 26, 1993 in Iowa City, Iowa) was an American composer. Gaburo was a highly influential teacher, and served as a professor of music at the University of Illinois and the University of California, San Diego. His notable students include James Tenney and Allen Strange. He most often made innovative use of electronics and explored tonality, serialism, and what he called "compositional linguistics" such as in his LINGUA series (Listening). He also wrote minimal pieces such as The Flow of (u) for three voices singing unison. The archive of his life's work is held at the University of Illinois Music Library.
