    Isn't it interesting how blurry the line between classical and not-classical is? For example, the contemporary ensemble Osso recently translated indie-pop artist Sufjan Steven's electronic album "Enjoy Your Rabbit" into a piece for string quartet. Now it's classical. And then there's Yasunao...
