Well, it seems that a bunch of us are leaning in the same direction at the same time. I can feel the Earth tilting. Recently I've been listening to Nancarrow's stuff for instruments *other* than the player piano. Some very fine stuff indeed :

THAT is one of the more intense pieces of music ever.

"Music is a big word" - but you're using it as though there is this extremely narrow definition at work.
Which is what? It should be something more conventionally pleasant and not challenging your prejudices at all?


Your expression here is just childish. And that you'd come into a thread where people are sharing things they enjoy to do that dull shit is exceedingly rude.

That was bound to happen... this kind of music, people tend to either love it, or really, really hate it (like, almost on a physical level). (I fall in the 'hate this' category too, to be fair)

This seems to hover between tonality and atonality - but whatever it is a gorgeous piece

My bias leans towards being open to different things and I took the OPs post to suggest that some younger than me are on a quest that is enriched by not worrying too much about whether it is or isn't music.

If someone at KVR was to expand their horizons, one tends to believe that doing that can help in many ways, including the vocational. Suppose that person got a chance to score a major Hollywood film, for example.

That's the beauty of it: the stuff is there whether you want to venture forth or not. And one can concentrate on one style (form) or another. Penderecki, after all did compose some later works that in parts sound like Bartok and other earlier composers who were not part of the atonal revolution.

Yeah and it seems to me that after WWII the influence of the atonal composers can be found all over the place.

A few years ago I got into the "Spectralist" composers, Radelescu, Murail, Grisey, Norgard, Saariaho, Harvey, etc. So much of it is lovely stuff, but the music that reached me deepest was by Claude Vivier.

A favorite :
