Austria mourns a reformed avantgardist, 62

The composer Thomas Pernes has died at home in Vienna after a severe illness.

A student of the quirky Haubenstock-Ramati, he broke out of the new music ghetto to interpolate elements of jazz, pop, minimalism and electronics in his pieces.

His works were performed worldwide.
