Ligeti

György Sándor Ligeti was a composer of contemporary classical music. Born in Transylvania, Romania, he lived in Hungary before emigrating and becoming an Austrian citizen.

Ligeti's music is best known to the general public for its use in the films of Stanley Kubrick. The soundtrack to 2001: A Space Odyssey includes excerpts from four of his pieces: Atmosphères, Lux Aeterna (for the moon-bus scene en route to the TMA-1 monolith in the crater Tycho), Requiem (the Kyrie), and an electronically altered version of Aventures (in the cryptic final scenes).
