I've been torturing my family with music by Veljo Tormis. "What in heck is this?" asks Violet.
In particular, my children seemed baffled by around 4:45 or so. It certainly doesn't stop them from imitating it or flapping their wings. They seem to get it on some level. Even if they seem miserable and keep putting their hands over their poor little ears. Here's more if that wasn't enough to last you a lifetime.
Many people consider Tormis the greatest living choral composer. I'm fascinated by his music. And somewhat confused by his beard. I do not understand that facial hair. Maybe it's practical.
His music puts me in mind of angry merfolk.
Or things going horribly wrong at sea.
