12:05 a.m.: Radio Stew: Bernard Parmegiani French composer died Nov. 22, 2013. From Wikipedia: "Bernard Parmegiani (27 October 1927 - 21 November 2013) was a composer best known for his electronic or acousmatic music. Between 1957 and 1961 he studied mime with Jacques Lecoq, a period he later regarded as important to his work as a composer. He joined the Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM) in 1959 for a two-year master class, shortly after its founding by Pierre Schaeffer. After leaving his studies with Lecoq, he was first a sound engineer and was later put in charge of the Music/Image unit for French television (ORTF). There he worked in the studio with several notable composers, Iannis Xenakis, for example."
