Max Neuhaus, a percussionist known for creating site-specific works of sound sculpture, allowing unsuspecting passers-by to come upon musical sounds in unlikely places, died Tuesday in Maratea, a coastal town in southern Italy, where he lived. He was 69. The cause was cancer, said his sister, Laura Hansen. Among them were Electronics and Percussion: Five Realizations by Max Neuhaus and Zyklus, a Stockhausen composition that called for 21 different instruments. By 1968, however, he had set out on a career as a new kind of music maker. Seeking to define the art that Mr. Neuhaus more or less invented, one admiring critic, John Rockwell, referred to him in The Times as an environmental composer. Continue reading the main story.

When Max Neuhaus first started to play this piece there were only three percussionists in the world who could play it. Stockhausen's idea was that a performer would play the piece spontaneously, making its complex decisions on the fly. No one played it this way; it was too difficult. Everyone wrote out his own version of the score and played from it. Coming from the world of jazz, Neuhaus decided he wanted to take up the challenge of playing it spontaneously. At that time percussionists generally played only one instrument at a time.
