Zones d'accord by Keeril Makan, one of my favorite contemporary classical composers.

^^^ Amazingly visceral. I'm guessing Keeril Makan works very closely with the musicians who play his work, since there is much in the music that seems like it would be difficult to express entirely through notation and performance notes.

I just read an interview with him not too long ago where he addresses exactly that point. Yes, he does work closely with the musicians playing his work. For Zones d'accord, for example, he had to demonstrate the bowing techniques and ways to finger the notes that would get those visceral effects. It seems like the cello's sound goes through lots of electronic processing, but it doesn't. Apparently it's all technique.

Nico Muhly--Honest Music. Lyrical and romantic, but in an entirely contemporary idiom.

That's so cool! I agree, she's very talented. She's also quite beautiful. inlove.gif I don't know what it is about women in contemporary, avante-garde classical music, but a very high percentage of them are quite attractive.

This is my favorite piece of music by her, by far. This is only an excerpt, but it's the only thing I can find to link to.

Possibly the greatest all-around artist of the twentieth century.
