Schoenberg refers to the influential composer Arnold Schoenberg, who many credit with the birth of atonal, or 12 tone music. A big influence on Frank Zappa.
Alban Berg was another influential atonal composer.
John Cage, an American composer, best known for his composition 4′33″, which I might title, musicians in a room, not playing, with 4’33” of background noise.
I absolutely love this song, and offer a shout out to my brother, Stu, who taught me all about such things.
