"l do not consider my music as atonal, but rather as non-tonal. I feel the unity of all keys. Atonal music by modern composers admits of no key at all, no feeling of any definite center." - Arnold Schoenberg

… 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

If you can last more than 10 minutes...well, you're a better man than me  :D

It does have a mesmerizing component once you get into it.

Mesmerization is not normally what I go for in music.  ;D

Let me guess: the mesmerizing bits start after the 10 minute mark ?

For me it starts when the work begins.

Interesting results! I never would have expected a piece by Cage, even though it's his most popular, to place 2nd on any of these lists.

For what it's worth, the Reich is perhaps my favorite piece of all-time. My ultimate goal is to catch a live performance some day.
