Mario Davidovsky is one of the most original and relevant voices on the contemporary music scene and a pioneer in composition by electronic means. In his celebrated series Synchronisms he explored the interaction and combination possibilities between prerecorded electronic sound and conventional instruments played live (ranging from a solo instrument to an orchestra and a choir), becoming an inescapable point of reference for composers working with mixed media.
