Ivo Malec

Ivo Malec was a Croatian-born French composer, music educator and conductor. One of the earliest Yugoslav composers to obtain high international regard, his works have been performed by symphony orchestras throughout Europe and North America. Coming from a rather'classical' background, he met Pierre Schaeffer whom he considers his'true and only master'. Since he dedicated himself to a more radical style, he received a number of awards including the Grand Prix National de Musique in 1992. He was resident in France since 1955 and taught at the Paris Conservatoire from 1972 to 1990 where he taught composers such as Édith Canat de Chizy, Denis Dufour, Philippe Hurel, Philippe Leroux and Gerard Pesson. See: List of music students by teacher: K to M#Ivo Malec. Malec's approach to composition which in ways is similar to that of Denis Dufour or Xenakis is the emphasis on all aspects of sound including texture, movement and notably sonic character and form and the use of sound objects.

Stein 2051

Stein 2051 is a nearby binary star system, containing a red dwarf and a degenerate star, located in constellation Camelopardalis at about 18 ly from Earth. Stein 2051 is the nearest separate binary system. Stein 2051 B is the 6th nearest white dwarf after Sirius B, Procyon B, van Maanen's star, LP 145-141 and 40 Eridani B; the brighter of this two stars is A, but the more massive is component B. In 2017, Stein 2051 B was observed passing in front of a more distant star; the bending of starlight by the gravitational field of the nearer star allowed its mass to be directly measured. The estimated mass of Stein 2051 B is 0.675±0.051 M☉, which fits the expected range of a white dwarf with a carbon-oxygen core. "CCDM J04312+5858AB -- Double or multiple star".
