Dagnabbit, Babbitt!

Milton Babbitt's dead. He may not mean much to you, but to me he was a hero - a serialist composer of infinite depth, an early electronic pioneer, and one of the first modernists I ever discovered. He's a cerebral kind of composer, though there's plenty for the emotions here, even a kind of beauty sometimes.
