1. You could be listening to Bach but you are listening to Zelenka.

it is kind of sad how so many great and fun baroque/classical composers are almost totally ignored now in favour of the big names. It's like not hearing any other 60's/70's music but the beatles and the stones.

Yeah. If I'm in a bad mood I can't listen to Zelenka. If I'm in a good mood he sounds sublime.

I mean, he sounds imitative and impotent and unimaginative if I have a headache or something.

2. Sometimes considered a Catholic bigot.

this particular Xenakis piece has a sound in it that sounds exactly like the tone my computer makes when i have another message in gmail chat.

Xenakis, HIS biography isn't boring.
