Like a week before Asura's Wrath came out, one of the beta players posted the first 18 minutes on YouTube, and this was the song that played in the background:



But when the game actually came out, they took away the voice so it sucked.  And everyone felt salty.  Thankfully someone posted this link on Facebook.

Phillip Glass's Violin Concert.

Holy moly. This is actually quite brilliant, and I've never thought of myself as a Minimalist fan before. It's just so hypnotic and wonderful; it harkens to the mood and atmosphere of the Impressionists while maintaining the simplicity of the Classical Period while incorporating beautiful melodies that seem almost Romantic!!!

Scriabin's sonatas. They're creepy in a good way.

I don't know why, but I've been a mood for listening to Scriabin/Prokofiev/Rachmaninoff these past few days.

I don't know... But it looks a little horrific.  Alice in Wonderland customes, white, red, a guy in a rabbit suit.

I think it's Taylor Swift on the Grammies.

It looks like someone just threw a circus in behind a teenage angst song.  Geez... I can't believe people buy that or they can make money of it.

Okay, so, apparently not.

I hate them all. I'm still waiting for that epiphany to hit, where I suddenly fall in love with his music. It's happened for me with Rachmaninoff, Scriabin, and Prokofiev. Eventually Beethoven will be appealing to me.  ;D

Okay, it hit me. I'm officially addicted. It actually took a while for it to sink in after I forced myself to listen to the 23rd sonata (interpretation by Richter). The 3rd movement haunted me at school all day.

About time! I didnt like lvb so much until i tried playing. You gotta start listening to something virtuosic! Itll inspire and lead you into the lifetyle which would be nothing without B.
