Igor Wakhevitch (born a 12 May in Gassin, a small and wonderful village from the 13th century with a view above the port and gulf of Saint Tropez, France) is an avant-garde French composer. He released a series of studio albums in the 1970s and composed the music of the only opera imagined by Salvador Dalí: Être Dieu ("To Be God").
