    Only Crumb and Nørgård, who are already way ahead of the curve.

    I guess I'll need to tun in my esoteric street cred now.

    Crumb and Norgard and a little of Lang.

    If challenged to pick something ArtMusic will like, it would have to be Norgard. Not major Norgard (actually from a film), not entirely atypical of him either.

    Claus-Steffen Mahnkopf has some good stuff on youtube thanks to incipitsify: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...jVfWETumCZ7a00

    He has a very wild, personal style that combines instruments (often just one instrument) and electronics.

    Claus-Steffen Mahnkopf is, along with the much more popular Per Nørgård, George Crumb, and relatively popular Bernhard Lang, my favorite on this list. Sometimes I think he'd be THE favorite of those four, but there's no point getting into competition with such high quality.

    His five volumes of music on the NEOS label, from solo works to works for large orchestra and tape, pump new life into the New Complexity movement in a way that no other composer has been able to. Although younger, with less under his belt, I believe Mahnkopf to have the same level of talent as Ferneyhough and Barrett.

    I should have voted for Mahnkopf. My mistake. Add another to his tally?

    Here's a cool piece by Durand. Sort of New Complexity meets Spectralism.

    Mochizuki is also incredible. Etheric Blueprint <3

    Though I remember one time, I was listening to Mochizuki in some earplugs, and I sorta dozed off, and the percussion made me bolt upright, thinking someone was HAMMERING on the door.

    Only Crumb and Nørgård for me too.

    ArtMusic, you could try Crumb's American Songbook series - some familiar tunes in odd guises.

    For example:

    I remember when Albert posted some links to Bernhard Lang's more crossover-ish stuff with turntablists and rappers and such. Everyone seemed to hate it. I like Paranoia for what it is, though the text is pretty annoying, but I wonder if people would have such dislike for the majority of Lang's work, the Differenz/Wiederholung series and the Monadologie series. Lang's big orchestral works on Col Legno and NEOS pretty much cement him as my favorite Lang, personally (Sorry Klaus and David)
