Axol's current selection is:
In Vain
by Georg Friedrich Haas
#SpectralWeek No. 5 This is a long piece of 1 hour duration but starts 28 minutes in unless you put the cursor back to the beginning. Don't know how that happened!

Haas' style recalls that of György Ligeti in its use of micropolyphony, microintervals and the exploitation of the overtone series; he is often characterized as a leading exponent of spectral music. His aesthetics is guided by the idea that music is able "to articulate a human being's emotions and states of the soul in such a way that other human beings can embrace these emotions and states of the soul as their own" . Thus Haas has disavowed the intellectualism of some strands of the modernist musical avant garde (such as serialism and deconstructivism). The emotional atmosphere of many of his works is sombre. Haas' operas have been criticized for evoking themes like suffering, illness and death to aesthetic voyeurism: One of his pieces (the opera Thomas, 2013) has been described as "coming dangerously close to a kind of palliative care ward tourism." In a similar vein, his orchestral works, like this one, have been compared to dark, suspenseful film music.

The tract above has been taken from the following link where more info. on the composer can be found https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georg_Friedrich_Haas
