Some of Claude Vivier's musical ideas bear a striking resemblance to the music of his close friends, Gérard Grisey and Tristan Murail. Like these spectral composers, Vivier is interested in spectrum of tone colour between harmonic overtones and noise and is heavily influenced by Messiaen. But Vivier retains his own voice, drawing much from Indian and Balinese music. His tragic and sudden passing in 1983 was widely mourned and deeply regretted.
