22: Some Recent Discoveries

Been busy lately and didn’t have time to write here. Still busy. So I will just throw in a short, random collection of music pieces I discovered lately (although some of them are not new at all). The two things they have in common are:

  • I like them (duh).
  • I just came across these pieces by chance (hence they are in the “On the Fly” category).

I hope you’ll enjoy too.

In a previous post, I discussed my affection for A Cappella music. So here is another one that I found recently. Again, this piece mixes dance-electronics with Gregorian chanting – one of my fav styles: Magna Canta by Agnus Dei:

The next song, I’m not sure how to describe, but I like it. So here it is: Animal Collective in My Girls:

Well, a nice clip if nothing else 😉

My friend, Uri introduced me to Philip Glass. Not sure how I missed him before, but I did. I found a lot of his music that I like a lot. He deserve a whole dedicated post (heck, a whole blog), but here at least is one of the pieces I like best –  Metamorphosis:

In a previous post (The Lost Memorial), I discussed the piece Memorial by Michael Nyman. I just found out lately that both Glass and Nyman are prominent musicians in the Minimalist genre. I guess I like minimalist.
