Profile
Morris David Brough Pert (8 September 1947 – 27 April 2010) was a Scottish composer, drummer, percussionist, and pianist who composed in the fields of both contemporary classical and jazz-rock music. His compositions include three symphonies, piano music, chamber and solo instrumental music, choral music, and "sonic landscapes" for electronic media. Pert spent two years (1970–1972) with Japanese percussionist Stomu Yamash'ta as a member of his ensembles East Wind and Red Buddha Theatre. He played with Brand X from 1977–1979, composing several tunes for them. He also worked extensively as a session musician and led his own band, Sun Treader.
