The Rite of Spring

I came across this great graphical representation of the first part of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, one of my favorite pieces of music ever. I knew it was complicated, but seeing it this way really gives me new appreciation for how this is performed. This is an incredibly complex work, and I find a lot of works from this time period that have so many moving parts and create so much tempestuous beauty out of dissonance and even noise fascinating and powerful.

Really cool and slightly psychedelic. :-)

I'm listening/watch to Part 2 right now. It's all great.
