Howard Skempton

Howard Skempton has worked as a composer, accordionist, and music publisher. He studied in London with Cornelius Cardew from 1967 and Cardew helped him to discover a musical language of great simplicity. Since then he has continued to write undeflected by compositional trends, producing a corpus of more than 300 works — many pieces being miniatures for solo piano or accordion. Skempton calls these pieces “the central nervous system” of his work. More
