Having studied abroad with Dallapiccola at Tanglewood, he became involved with composers such as Boulez, Stockhausen, Ligeti and Kagel. He taught extensively at Harvard, Tanglewood and Julliard, giving highly regarded lectures on music and composing. His interest in electronics led him to take up an important position at IRCAM and he latterly founded his own research centre for new music, the Tempo Reale, back in Italy. These fourteen pieces for various solo instruments are among the most often performed contemporary solo pieces of in the world. A central theme in all the Sequenzas is that of virtuosity, evident not only in the technical difficulties presented, but also in the treatment and writing style for the instruments.

Apparently he scared some listeners so much that they forgot to really listen, preferring to bring instead a grab-bag of adjectives that they could apply to most prominent composers of the period: "cerebral," "soulless," and their Roget equivalents.
