Who I studied with

I was a composition major for a year (1982) at Illinois State University. The teacher was a guy named Roque Cordero, a Panamanian composer of some note amongst composers of note (I guess). His music was atonal and sounded to me like demented ragtime.

Spiritual Heir to Dave Brubeck?

He wrote many fine pieces in traditional time signatures, but of course is best known for his compositions in unusual time signatures. I was listening to Rush Permanent Waves (their best, I think) today and realized that they too use all sorts of odd time signatures, and often change time multiple times throughout a piece. There are really only a small number of artists who work outside of the confines of 3/4 or 4/4 time.
