This music is more terrifying to listen to than most modern horror films are to watch

This music sounds like it came out of the darkest regions of the human mind.

Classical music is not just about listening to works from long dead composers.

Stanley Kubrick must have listened to this while making 2001 a space odyssey. the scope of this is so vast, so beyond description. and it has a nice beat and i can dance to it.

Shattering stuff! You're never the same after Penderecki.
This mood is overwhelmingly eerie. This is totally different from what I expected from the title. And I don't mind it at all.

jedna z najlepszych rzeczy Pendereckiego. W mojej szkole muzycznej byla to "lektura obowiazkowa"
Petru T.
Petru T.:
This portraits exactly the coldness, powerful hostility to every life form of space itself. The sky may look beautiful and transcending but that's just an appearance. When you have an entire void filled with solar wind, gamma ray bursts, black holes, rocks that are going a few times faster than a bullet then this music is suitable for that image.

A very interesting score by Penderecki before his conversion to neoromantism.

Just found out about penderecki by listening to cello concerto no.1 and absolutey loving his music
It's like that music that I always loved to hear but never knew what to type to find it
If you like this try Penderecki's "Utrenja" for a mind-blowing experience

Mister Argenr
Mister Argenr:
The way Penderecki applies the sheer depth and magnitude of sound one can achieve with an orchestra to capture existential, pants-shitting dread is absolutely flawless. hearing this from the first row of a concert at volumes that seem like they'll flay the skin off your head must be incredible.

Christian e.g.:
The sons of God, the Watchers, descended to earth from their heavenly abode in the tike of Jared... and descended to the top of Armon, which is Mount Hermpn, 200 in number! And they defiled the seed of man by choosing themselves wives from among the daughters of men. And their leaders were Semyaza and Azazel and they taught man the arts of war and woman, the arts of seduction and ege paint and cosmetics and enchantments! And then were born their offspring... the nephilim giants! "...which were of old, ken of renown"
and the earth was filled with violence and tge thoughts of men's hearts was only evil continually."

penderecki est un compositeur de génie ,, sa musique est profonde , mystèrieuse fascinante , un voyage dans les tréfonds de la matière du cosmos et dans les méandres de l'âme et de l'esprit humains ,, les voix viennent approfondir ,les ténèbres que propagent des sont savamment éclatés réduits à un état subatomique trop hermétique à l'esprit humain , il peut en résulter une alchimie , une déduction de la présence divine et comme pour la vision d'une toile abstraite c'est à l'auditeur de pressentir les énergies vitales et les fluides susceptibles d'innerver la matière primitive , l'avant bing bang , les équations infinies qu'il reste à résoudre et comme beaucoup d'auditeurs je regrette que penderecki ne soit pas plus souvent au répertoire des grandes soirées de concert , pour des raisons qu'il n'est pas très difficiles d'appréhender ,, merci pour le partage

The chord at 15:00 is mind bogglingly horrifying. Just makes me want to gouge out my eyes, stab my ear drums, rip it my tongue all at once. I don't understand it. Great!
I first listened to Penderecki in my 20’s when I heard he won European Music awards, I loved his music, a secret unknown is Kosmogonia in 1970 for chorus and orchestra, on vinyl is was a show stopper. I have a considerable Penderecki collection, now he is gone, his music will live with me until the day I die.

I was looking at "cosmology-themed" orchestral works and this piece was mentioned in one online article. Somehow, even though tension and dissonance are almost constant, the work produces a unique, terrifying, but beautiful art experience !!! I think that is what I like in the modernist works of not only Penderecki, but in those of Lutoslawski and Ligeti too (some of Crumb's and Takemitsu as well) !!!

The most terrifying moment is at 7:05. A major chord is struck amongst all that dissonance, and within it is encapsulated the wonder and horror of the cosmos

Kosmogonia dates from before the radical changes of the art of Penderecki towards a post-wagnerian aesthetics.

It's in the soundtrack of _Ręce do góry_ (known in its subtitled English version as _Hands Up!_ ), you can hear it over images of Beirut ruins in the film's prologue.

12:10 Now that's scary!
Christian e.g.
Christian e.g.:
and the ancient ruins of theyr great cities still lay silently on the seafloors, far removed and hidden away from the sight of the modern world. Until 2009 ! When Google Earth showed the location of their greatest city! That great Pre-Flood metropolis on the North Atlantic Seafloor, 3 miles down in the Abyssopelagic ocean layer on the Plain of Medeira! That ancient grid pattern that Google Earth and the U.S. gov't are desperate to airbrush completely out of newer editions of google earth. But they cannot make it go completely away. You can still see it if you look closely, you can still make out that astonishing grid pattern the size of the state of Vermont to the southeast of the Azores, where the North Atlantic Mid Ocean Ridge widens out intona Y-shape! That vast city of the Pre Flood ancients! A real live artifact from the world before the flood in all its Antediluvian glory, long ago buried under the deep dark waters of judgment, put away from the world above! Perhaps some dark secrets are better left... undisturbed

This guy is the Sun Ra of classical music, Penderecki you are inspiring thank you.
Christian e.g.
Christian e.g.:
From the research ship on the surface above, the order was given, and the R.O.V. switched on its powerful floodlights and the true scale of the ruins of the ancient seafloor city came into view! A collective gasp arose on the research ships above as the French and Russian crews took in the staggering sight, hidden away for 5,000 years under 3-miles of deep Atlantic seawater, in the darkness of the Abyssopelagic ocean layer. Rows upon rows of statues of what looked like angelic figures with strange disc-shaped head dresses lined the south side of the vast arena, whose porcelain or tile floor still looked fairly smooth after 5,000 of submergence under 3 miles of dark water. It was terrifying to behold: numerous figures in martial combat postures were frozen in place all over the ancient coliseum. Were they stone statues or actual ancient specimens of men and giants, petrified by ocean sediments? And if so, how were they frozen into place? It was the eeriest thing any of them had ever seen. There was an immediate call for censorship of this starkly terrifying artifact from any submerged reconnaissance and sattelite radar mapping. This dark secret, it was agreed, must NOT be made known to the world above, but rather left quietly undisturbed in all its megalithic antediluvian repose. Perhaps some ancient secrets were better left... undisturbed

When we finally leave the womb of our Blue Sphere and venture beyond it we will have to abandon any thoughts about a sympathetic universe. It may be beautiful in places but it is a limitless expanse of unimaginable indifference. Limitless beyond any previous estimations.
