Most of these notations come from the Notations 21 project. Can you tell what instruments are to be played? What notes are high or low? Loud or soft? Long or short? What is the character- angry, chaotic, peaceful, random?
Check this music out if you missed class or are new! This is our model for our Ligeti Compositions... Ligeti uses ONLY the notes A and D for this piece (and actually, most of it is A's... there's just one D at the very end!).
This is a piece of Ligeti's "Lontano" as featured in the old school horror film "The Shining."
