“Out of Tune”

Hauer's Legacy and the Aesthetics of Minimalism in Art and Music

(p.163) Five “Out of Tune”
Visible Deeds of Music

Simon Shaw-Miller

Yale University Press

This chapter analyzes the works of Austrian composer Josef Matthias Hauer. It explains that Hauer's music and ideas have much in common with Greenbergian modernism in its attempt to develop a new metamusical language, and examines Hauer's ideas in relation to the developments from dodecaphony to Karlheinz Stockhausen's notion of form minimalism, in both music and visual art. The chapter also contends that Hauer's aesthetic is related to categories of minimalism that include the avoidance of aleatoricism, the emphasis on surface, and the concern with disposition rather than composition.

Keywords:   Josef Matthias Hauer, Hauer's music, Austrian composer, Greenbergian modernism, metamusical language, Karlheinz Stockhausen, minimalism
