(1954- ). US experimental classical composer, with a pronounced interest in sf as well as more general pop culture. His early symphony Metropolis Symphony for Orchestra (1988-1993) is based on the Superman comics; UFO for Solo Percussion and Orchestra (1999) was inspired by the 1947 Roswell incident (see UFOs); and Time Machine (2003) is scored for three orchestras, one scored "past", one "present" and one "future", as musical correlatives for travel through time (see Time Travel).
