    I closed the window at 5:00. :eyebrow:

    She sure can play, but let's just say that my ears are not developed enough to understand her 'music'. :rollno:

    I'm pretty sure I remember having the 1st movement of this piece down at the age of 3.

    I guess you can put me down as one of the ones who just "don't get it"

    That was interesting...
     
  7. You missed the best part, when she starts singing along!

    To me the whole thing kind of seemed like what it would sound like if you put a bass in the gorilla cage at the zoo. (IMHO.)

    yeah, I can enjoy a composition where some tiny bits of these noises, 'techniques', etc are use for effect but the whole piece...:rollno:

    Joelle is an acquired taste for sure.

    She has decades of history playing "modern" classical music as well as free improv. Like all musicians working in that area, you really have to be willing to sample enough of her music to see if there's something more, um, grounded that you might like :meh:

    Just to be clear : I wasn't being facetious. I really dig this **** and that is why I posted it. For those asserting that this music is zoophilous in nature, I would say that there were strong negative reactions to Jackson Pollock at a certain time also. Today, he is revered as a quintessential abstract expressionist.
     
  13. I was serious when I said I like it. It does occasionally get dangerously close to being melodic though. :D

    I can see why it wouldn't be for everybody.
