    The Les Filles de Illighadad sounds fantastic.

    The most disturbing piece of music I’ve heard is Giacinto Scelsi’s five movement piece Uaxuctum. (Subtitled, “The legend of the Maya city, destroyed by themselves for religious reasons”) Truly the soundtrack for doomsday. Like the guy had looked so long into the darkness he saw what’s really there.

    Oh yeah, I’ve heard a few of Scelsi’s compositions. I included the wonderfully-titled Uaxuctum in this list of recommended listening for Halloween:

    I suppose I ought to try making a mix of that collection although it would be very long and a tough thing to listen to all the way through.
