John Adams - Grand Pianola Music

"...and now for something completely different."

For those of you who'd like to see the face of God this evening. 

John Adam is a living American composer, and this is probably one of his finest works. The piece is mostly pleasant up until about 5:14 when the sirens, muttering triads of wordless syllables, begin their song. Perhaps not the best recording, but it'll do. So light up a doob, and enjoy some contemporary American minimalism.
