Dutch composer Simeon ten Holt, who became world famous with his Canto Ostinato, died yesterday in a hospital in Alkmaar. Last year there was a Dutch documentary film about the Canto Ostinato, called Over Canto (About Canto) about the influence the composition had on various people.

Simeon ten Holt became 89 years old. He started his composing career as a serial music composer, but switched to his now famous harmonious, repetitive style in the 1970s.
