Aces, dude.
Auden would've appreciated (your slang).
… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.    RVW, 1948

What’s Del Tredici’s Alice Symphony like, Paul?

The piece I like better is actually Final Alice, which is one of the pieces Alice Symphony is based on. Think of an episodic long piece with a girlish voice speaking and occasional screaming through much of it.
Do what I must do, and let what must happen happen.
