Hundredth post!!!1

This is the hundredth post to appear on This Blog Will Change the World. Yay, I guess?

I've posted before about my difficulty with the works of Brian Ferneyhough. There are plenty of composers I don't enjoy, but he's the only one whose music I feel totally unable to comprehend in any sense. Perhaps I need to hear more of his music.

It's an interesting testament to his personality, however, that he seems to have actually responded to a series of discussion questions on his music appended to his Wikipedia article - despite their oversimplified language and sometimes aggressive tone. Indeed, his demeanor in interview makes me really want to like his music. Perhaps someday I will.
