That is great! But we need more young blood, like Newirt

Bashkii: You can call Stockhausen arrogant and be correct, but a ''moron'' he isn't. I've loved his music (which I don't consider ''overthough t ' ' ) since I first heard Gesang der Jugend as a little boy. And Stravinsky, too. wrote in odd meters. I'm guessing you might like The Firebird, so I hope you'll hold off on drafting those overthinking rules: Different strophes for different oafs (I happen to be the other oaf, so don't take offense -- it's just a rhyme).

Just heard a composition by him that sounded like aliens invading my subconscious . . .

I like the visceral effect that (some of)Stockhaus e n ' s work gives me, it is interesting on my ears and puts me in a nice mind space.

Composers like Stockhausen, Boulez, Cage, Nono, Xenakis, Ligeti, and Varese over-think music. A great amount of thought definitely goes into this kind of music, but their obsession with "what music can be" turns their music into a kind of "sound world," meant to be appreciated as just that - an arrangement of sound in an interesting fashion. I find this difficult to appreciate.

The thought that went into making this work is palpable; I can almost feel the composers contemplatio n , cerebration - torn over what sound(s) or silence comes next, what sounds and silence, intensity, tempo to weave together to make the right statement. This music is very expressive and powerful and by extension, beautiful. It is a different beauty from the works of say Bach, Beethoven, Motzart, etc. It lacks the traditional melody we are trained to hear and appreciate in our culture.

Yeah man, like Varese could totally like kick the Darmstadt guys butt in a avantgarde cage match man cause like they were total sissies man. My dog is more imaginative than Stockhausen and he doesn't even know what a time signature is. He still drinks his water in 7/8. Plus Stockhausen had to splice in everything. Ionize that suckas....

I have liked this music since I first heard it. Also like Verese

many people are appalled by the dissonance of his music, but his impact on modern music is undeniable. many of the early fusionists and industrialis t s credit his avant garde tonalities and rhythmic investigatio n s with inspiring their growth and direction.

Appalling. And he was serious when he said he was convinced he was a messenger from planet Sirius. I mean really...

This is even worse. What a Bozo!! Edgar Varese was much much more imaginative and he wrote everything in 4/4 ,3/4 and 2/4 meter signatures. He didn't need to alienate the players like these morons at Darmstad did. Oh, and his Poeme electronique is infinitely more "inspired" than anything the Darmstad bozos wrote, electronic or otherwise.

sublimely effervescent and euphoric.... .
