Xenakis has a reputation for being inaccessible and it's probably justified. But I don't see why anyone would have trouble with this work for percussion. I much prefer the version played by the "red fish blue fish" ensemble but this youtube video at least gives you some idea.
Wow that's really cool, I haven't heard Xenakis before.
This one is good too / I maybe like the multiple/larger drums even more:
Cool! I'm definitely in the mood for some interesting rhythms.
Hahaha, wow yeah that other piece is definitely... abrasive and terrifying. But cool nonetheless!
I like the one you call "very mathy". Another fun avenue of music to explore. Thanks!
Cool, glad you like the mathy one. I just discovered an acoustic guitarist who strikes me as similar to that, so you may like it as well: hunch.com/item/hn_4006131/everybody-loves-you/
One of my favourite tracks. All seems sweet and light until 1:50, it descends into apparent chaos at 2:00, lulls you into a false sense of security at 2:15, and then he gradually reopens the floodgates. But at 5:00 he just acts all innocent like nothing ever happened.
Interpol are one of those bands that I remember once a year and wonder how I forgot about them. This debut album was amazingly good.
I need to forget them. I'm sure I'd enjoy them more I rediscovered them once a year instead of playing their albums to death :-)
