Le Monde has reported that experimental composer Luc Ferrari died of pneumonia on Monday evening, August 22 while on vacation in Arezzo, Italy.  Steven Stapleton of Nurse With Wound once said in an interview, "my true love is the Italian born Luc Ferrari of whom United Dairies would give their testicles to issue some of his material here in England." He was 76.

(Note: Ferrari, however, is reported in numerous places to have been born in Paris in 1929.)
