Olivier Messiaen - (1908-1992) a French composer and organist, one of the major composers of the 20th century. His music is rhythmically complex; harmonically and melodically it is based on modes of limited transposition, which he abstracted from his early compositions and improvisations. Messiaen found birdsong fascinating, notating bird songs worldwide and incorporating birdsong transcriptions into his music.
