BTW karlheinz stockhausen-Microphone 1 & 2 is seriously the weirdest and one of the trippiest things I've ever heard, you guys hould definitely check out if you're into psy. I mean lets put it this way, it starts out with what sounds like a balloon being rubbed along some metal thing... and from there it just gets weirder, there's also some really insane voice effects I don't think I've ever heard before.

Nice topic.


Alexander Scriabin - Prometheus, The Poem Of Fire


This is very powerful music. The deal with this music is it gets better the more you listen.

The dissonance, or unusual harmony, may put you off at first, but those who persist may start to appreciate and find beauty in it.

When I listen to this now for the 15th time or so, I don't hear any uglyness or randomness anymore. Because I now recognize its structure (more or less) and the various little themes this piece is built on. The final chord is the greatest chord in the history of music. Enjoy. :)

Charles Wuorien - Time's Enconium. Can't find the whole thing on Youtube. This is the best...
