    UPDATE:

    I had a feeling I was doing something wrong. Double checked the "living status" of everyone. Turns out Jouni Kaipainen died about 9 weeks ago. We fans of Finnish music will miss him, so here's a bit of a piece:

    Dufourt is the only one I'm sure I've heard some works by.

    PS I've read a book by him as well, a book on modern/contemporary music which, although a bit biased, deserves to be read: "Musique, pouvoir, ecriture" 1991.

    He's also a great composer, so don't feel bad

    In what sense is this a redemption round? I have heard of only one of these composers. As for actually hearing their music - nada, absolutamente nada!

    Estrada. Ishini'ioni in particular.

    Wasn't sure about Huber because I think there are multiple Hubers.

    Klaus Huber is more well-known, but Nicolaus has a fair number of recordings.

    I voted "I Have Not Heard Music By Any Of These Composers" but I am curious to explore their music. I welcome any recommendations.

    Annie Gosfield - heard a stunning keyboard piece played by Lisa Moore. (thanks to Selby.)
    Barbara Monk Feldman - I have the Mode & New World Record albums. Beautiful.
    Hugues Dufourt - mesmerizing sound world.

    I heard some pieces of Posadas and Estrada from Donaueschinger compilations. I have been wanting to check out more works by them.
