Ditto, one of my favorites. Atmospheres. The high warbling note is two piccolos, IIRC. (piccoli?) One of my biggest disappoints was years ago when we organized a concert of György Ligeti's music in Paris. He was to attend, but fell ill and could not make the trip. Great concert, sorry I didn't get to meet the man.

The fact that I worked at IRCAM for Pierre Boulez might also go some way in explaining my taste for dissonance.

Maybe because there's a mantra thing going on there, a kind of hypnotic induction, it gets you in the 'mood'. A friend dragged me to one of their concerts. OK, unusual 'instruments' and yeah, it doesn't sound like the Beatles but I didn't find the music pleasant to my senses; ergo I didn't like it, ergo artistic value my *** .

*I enjoyed the way Blixa destroyed his guitar amp though, used his axe as a spear. He wasn't happy with its sound. I understood.

* From EN I only like one LP, can't remember the name but they kept the metal banging to a minimum.

I don't think I expressed myself very well. I mean that dissonant music can be enjoyable but only when you are aware of it's context.

Some people like eating hot peppers, right? When you think about it there's nothing inherently pleasurable about hot peppers. They cause a painful burning sensation to the point where they can be used as a weapon. A baby will not enjoy a hot pepper. But a grown person who is aware of it's cultural context, of how to use it appropriately can learn how to appreciate it.

It's an acquired taste.

Right, like a beer for example. Or vodka. Or smoking tobacco. Attributes of "Grown up" life.

I like eating hot peppers for its taste, not for the burning sensation after it

That explains why I stopped smoking at the age of 11, and never liked a beer. I never grown up

not growing up is a good thing, I only smoked for 2 years but I wish I never did it anyway, I smoked anything, even White Ox...

Just before I quit I went searching for a pack of Lucky Strike, never did find them for sale.

Last Halloween someone made a radio (college radio of course) request for "Litanies for Satan" just because they had never heard it. They called back and told them to take it off, and they did.

Hot peppers can release endorphins, there are folks that get off on them. Not me, there is a new brand of pre-prepared Thai food on the shelves here that is actually made in Thailand. I ate one of the little red ones, bad, bad.
