Moondog

Louis Thomas Hardin

Also known as Louis "Moondog" Hardin, Moon Dog, Moondog, Moondog & His Drums

Short biography of Moondog : Revered pioneer on the avant-garde/minimalist scene, usually within the jazz realm. His revolutionary attitude towards composition and melody was lauded by such eminent contemporaries as [a=Philip Glass] and [a=Steve Reich], while his style and attitude drew comparisons to [a=Harry Partch]. His influence can be seen in the music of [a=Stereolab] and [a=Moonshake] among many others.

Moondog wrote all his music in braille having lost his sight in an accident involving a dynamite cap at the age of 17.

Born May 26, 1916 in Marysville, Kansas; died September 8, 1999 in M√ľnster, Germany.
