Good one! He should have stuck to this line of music rather than striving to carve a solo career based on one John Lennon song.And of course, Roxy Music with Brian Eno on board was something entirely different from Roxy Music without him.

I love Alfred Schnittke. :tup: Here's the whole piece in it's full orchestration...

Conlon Nancarrow was a programmer of the first music computer...



Nancarrow, Studies for Player Piano (wiki)

[Study No. 21, the canon X] is an acceleration study where one voice progressively slows down while the other speeds up. The study starts with a bass line playing a 12-tone row at about 4 notes per second, immediately followed by the other voice, playing thirty-nine notes per second. Then the bass line starts to speed up and the treble line slows down progressively, reaching the same tempo halfway through the piece. The piece ends up with one of the lines playing 120 notes per second. It was presumably written in 1961 and was first performed in the Mexico City performance in 1962. The X alludes to the tempo acceleration and deceleration of both parts in the canon. It was also arranged for synthesizer, Marantz computer-piano, two disc-pianos and two voices.[WTF!]

The ISB was my favourite for years and I was a hippy.

I, on the other hand, have had short hair for most of my life, for a while I used to give myself haircuts. Not your garden variety hippy but an angry young woman.

J. S. Bach was the Jimi Hendrix of the 18th century and the harpsichord was his axe. When he got the latest, greatest model one day, he decided to write a piece specifically to see what new riffs he could tear on it. He starts shredding at 6:15. Though it appears somewhat chaotic, it is not. It's an orderly, logical progression from start to finish. Still an absolute ripper, but.



Think of it as a rather more involved development than another one, an excerpt of his Musical Offering, which some bright spark has explained graphically by displaying the notes (in part) on a Möbius strip.



Pipe the first piece through to a nice stereo, if you can, and
turn it up.
