Just listened through this one from start to finish, after casually delving into it on and off for years without liking it (but having people constantly tell me to listen harder and/or that I dont "get it").
My thoughts: some interesting ideas from a purely technical perspective, but as complete whole it doesnt work.
As alluded to by Conservationist in another thread, 20th century/modern classical music is mono-dimensional. It picks one mood or facet of technique and hammers on and on with it (tonal and non-tonal music alike). Stravinskys "great revolution" I feel has more to do with turning classical music towards this than the introduction of anything musically new.
Technically though I cant help but feel alot of the musical ideas I'm hearing were done better in metal. Especially the interlocking disjointed rhythmic cells that seem to stutter towards melodicity - I hear Gorguts, Voivod, Destruction and Demilich echoing in there. Difference is I think that certain excesses of writing like this were tempered by those metal bands - which may be because they still had a foot in rock music or just that they had a better sense of pacing and tension/release than Stravinsky.Download the rite of spring
