Alexander Scriabin
Scriabin always said that everything within his later compositions was strictly according to 'law.' He said that he could prove this fact. However, everything seemed to conspire against his giving a demonstration. One day he invited Taneyev and I to his apartment so he could explain his theories of composition. We arrived and he dilly-dallied for a long time. Finally, he said he had a headache and would explain it all another day. That 'another day' never came.
Scriabin quotes
Skryabin comes so close to the twelve-note system that it seems probable he would have taken it as the next logical step.
I am God.
