American composer Robert Erickson (1917-1997) was among the first of his compatriots to embrace twelve-tone composition. Following modernist ideas throughout his career, he later evolved into a minimalist. He composed in almost every genre except opera. He co-founded the music department at the University of California, San Diego.
