Josef Matthias Hauer (1883-1959)
** okay. i looked this guy up in my grove when i got home today.
here's what it says about his serialism:
"In 1919 he discovered the serial method he used exclusively thereafter: he understood the 12-note set as a heachord trope (i.e., a sequence of *unordered groups of six note each*).
emphasis in asterisks is mine.
ths is a pretty interesting analog to the current conversation as:
1. he and schoenberg came up with different methodologies that were "serial" (and they were both very proprietery about it) at roughly the same time.
2. the way hauer used the system is not (to my knowledge) the way that most people use serialism - - my understanding is that most people use it *sequentially* (as did a schoenberg and those that followed).
thanks for the info on hauer. i'll read up a little more on him soon. anyone actually heard any music he wrote??
