Carl Ruggles

American composer Charles Sprague Ruggles (March 11, 1876 - October 24, 1971), beter known as Carl, wrote finely-crafted pieces using "dissonant counterpoint", a term coined by Charles Seeger to describe Ruggles' music. Friends with Henry Cowell, Edgard Varese, and Charles Seeger, he wrote painstakingly slowly so his output is relatively small. His compositions include Angels, Sun-treader, Organum, Men and Mountains, and Exaltation.
