    Biber has long been a baroque favorite of mine. I came across this intriguing work yesterday, while listening to works that may qualify for the orchestral list project. I was amazed at the dissonance employed at times in this piece - truly avante-garde for when it was written. According to the notes listed under this work on the youtube video this work used many other non-traditional techniques for its time as well such as - striking the bow on the instrument, woven paper through strings, polyrhythm, and 'Ives-like' polytonality.

    If I'm not mistaken, the crazy 'polytonal' part in Biber's Battalia is supposed to signify the drunkeness of the soldiers.

    Here's some more baroque avant-garde, the opening Chaos movement from Jean-Fery Rebel's The Elements (1737)



    The Fire Chaconne, one of my favorites from the rest of Les Elemens:
