A time span of two decades and the ensuing advent of electronic music on magnetic tape separate the composition of these works, yet they share important musical and historical attributes. Quite apart from their obvious similarities of instrumentation, both are justifiably regarded as milestones in the recent history of compositional technique. Both received their first performances under the auspices of the International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM).
