Modern Classical Wednesday! (Pixlbit Version!)
If you know me from 1up, you know that every wednesday I post "modern classical" songs for everyone to hear. This means classical music composed in the last 100 years or so, which is my favorite genre of music, and what I listen to sixteen hours a day. I feel it is my job to share this wonderful music with others, as it's so under the radar, and yet so good. So without further ado, here are some of my favorites to start out the Pixlbit tradition....
Annie Clark, "Proven Badlands" This is one of my favorite modern pieces. Plus, Annie is gorgeous.
John Adams, "the Chairman Dances". I'm going to learn how to play this and play it on an Akai MPC and make a youtube video of it.
Philip Glass, "Einstein on the Beach." I'm gonna learn how to play this too.
Another one of my favorites, Steve Reich's New York Counterpoint, played on saxophones:
John Cage, "Six Melodies"
Finally, some old school Bach for dat ass. "Brandenburg Concerto #6, First Movement" -- my favorite. This is gonna play during my funeral.
