    Christian, there are also Norgard’s Symphonies # 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7

    … and “Terrains Vagues” for those who like experimental rhythmic music and metronomes and accordians.

    (I haven’t yet had time to watch the video.)

    I love Norgard’s music. Spell is one of the earliest examples of European minimalism (1973), and Voyage Into the Golden Screen (1969) strikes me as a proto-Spectral work before Murail or Grisey. The Langgaard work he discusses is an extraordinarily prescient composition.
