Tom Fudge : The name Ligeti refers to a multi-generational family of daring contemporary composers. The late Hungarian composer Gyorgi Ligeti was known to a mass audience as a result of being used in several Stanley Kubrick films. His son, Lukas Ligeti, is a composer and percussionist who is heavily influenced by African folk music.
