Innovative and experimental American composer Henry Dixon Cowell (1897-1965) was born in Menlo Park, California, growing up surrounded by a variety of Oriental musical traditions, his father's Irish heritage, and his mother's Midwestern folktunes. All of this flavored his compositional style, even when he was branching out into even more varied areas and genres.
