While I was busy composing my masterpiece, news of a real composer of masterpieces death has come across the wire.
I'm not going to front like I'm some expert on modern classical. I'm not. I can tell you this, I really dig Ligeti though. Yes, alot of that has to do with his music being used in 2001. However, that actually got me to check out more of his stuff and while it's not something I could listen to everyday, when I'm in the mood, it's the kind of music that can totally entrance me.
Really, do yourself a favor and check some of his stuff out. I'm partial to this CD myself.
