Australian composer and pianist Percy Grainger had an acclaimed career as both a pianist and a composer. After early success in Britain, Grainger settled in the United States and became well known for his settings of British folk music and original works for wind bands, such as Lincolnshire Posy (1937). In later years, Grainger experimented with 'free music' including attempts to build machines to remove the performer entirely from the musical process.
