Krzysztof Penderecki -- Polymorphia

Happy Halloween, everyone! Everyone talks about 'creepy' music they hear, stuff with little squeaks and ambient hums, but this composition that was written in 1961 by Polish composer Krzystof Penderecki truly stretches the mind for the surreal and terrifying. Yes, it's a more popular piece of his but it's one of my favorites. Sadly, I cannot find the artist information for this piece. If anyone knows of it, could they tell me so I can properly attribute them? Thanks!

Please, turn off all the lights and turn up the stereo (or your headphones) and try not to get too scared!

Happy Halloween,
AnAmericanComposer

Jonny describes this perfectly. It isn't terrifying, only strange.

The Excorcist soundtrack from ‘73 jumps you every time. Most disturbing and best horror film of all time.

He even himself said that he came back to a more "traditional" music. He said that he pushed too much the instruments. But it's curious. Maybe If I was him I would combine few of these lessons with his new music. Maybe he did. For example, when I heard Utrenia or Passion St. Luke.

Polymorphia dates from the period "avant-garde". Hearing and looking at the score makes impenetrable the reason why he switched to a rather conventional form of neoromantism. It is much more strange for me than the neoclassicism and the "returns to" of Stravinski.

11:04 This part in this particular recording was used in the soundtrack for "Ready Player One" during "The Shining" parody sequence.

A truly unnerving work. Almost manic. It is disturbing as much as it is prophetic. Will our global landscape ever look like this? Somehow I think it might.

If you own all the cool records in existence, you will still be able to hold this in one hand and say "singularity!" and Basil Kirchin...

Musica contemporanea, avanguardia...tutto bello, riposante, senza necessariamente essere emozionante.
