Why do we not discuss clouds more?

WATER

LIKE WHAT THE FUCK, WHY DO WE EVER STOP TALKING ABOUT THIS

WHAT IS THIS

HOW IS THIS EVEN

AND NOW THE FLYING WATER IS EATING A MOUNTAIN

GOD DAMN, WHAT

This is my favorite post on Tumblr.

I have this extension for Chrome so the first line of this post reads “Why do we not discuss butts more?” and honestly that’s a valid question too.

Can we talk about butts sometime?

Arthur Lourié is one of my favourite composers, and Concerto Spirituale is one of my favourite works by the man. Listen to it. You’ll find it reminiscent of the later Symphony of Psalms, a more well-known work by Stravinsky.


I’m as surprised as you are that I have not yet posted the SIbelius Violin Concerto, given my huge celebrity crush on the man. This is the third movement - I trust that you too will become so enamored of the work that you’ll listen to the first two on your own time. Have fun.

Today is my birthday, so I felt that Stravinsky’s Greeting Prelude, which was in fact based on the tune of “Happy Birthday”, would be appropriate. Also, it’s really late and I may or may not have spelled the above correctly - I honestly can’t tell. Anyway, listen to this.

I’ve always been a fan of the Ethiopian jazz musician Mulatu Astatke. His music is good stuff. Here’s a track of his called Emnete. I hope you enjoy it.

Oh my God, I feel like I’m listening to this piece anew. I’ve definitely fangirled over Salonen before, given that I MET HIM IN FEBRUARY, but here I am fangirling some more. HE’S COMING BACK TO MY TOWN AND PERFORMING THIS PIECE. It’s called Nyx.

Picked up a CD of Xenakis’s Pléïades for percussion ensemble today. The work was composed in 1978. Driving has never been the same since. I hope you have fun listening to the work.

I used to post just once per day. Screw that. I saw this a few months ago. I was blown away. This is Lutosławski’s Cello Concerto. It’ll blow you away too. Have fun.


Not throat-singing, but vocal fry - this piece features an oktavist, someone who sings an octave below most bass singers. Apparently they feature in Russian Orthodox vocal music. This is a piece called “Ne otverzhi mene” (Do not reject me) by Pavel Chesnokov.

I’ve gotten kind of good at throat-singing, actually. Here’s some more. This is Imre Peemot, a Finnish throat singer in the Tuvan style performing the song “Kolhozhu men,” which I can only assume is about kolkhozy, but I have no idea. Enjoy.
