Dear Collective Wisdom

could you help me with references to any (comprehensive / seminal /
detailed) (theoretical/ aesthetical/ analytical/ overview) publications in
English or French
about contemporary (trans-/cross-/inter-/poly-/cultural) composition that
one must not be unaware of if thinking about the subject...

I mean western art music composers such as Tan Dun, Frank Denyer, Takahashi
Yuji, Isang Yun, Liza Lim, Samir Odeh-Tamimi, Jean-Claude Eloy, Mochizuki
Misato , Hosokawa Toshio, Guo Wenjing, Xu Shuya, Jin Hi Kim, Chen Xiaoyong,
Younghi-Pagh Paan, Claude Vivier, Klaus Huber, Karlheinz Stockhausen, etc. -
a wide selection but I hope you get the drift.
Publications after 2000 are preferred.

I will give some lectures and analysis seminars this summer, and I already
have a small reading list, but as I am not a theoretician myself, and not
really well versed in the anglophone discourse (being more of German
extraction) I may have overlooked some essential reading.

Thankful for any hint. Names of composer you consider seminal and who do not
appear in the list above are also welcome, if possible with contacts or
