Violent Modern Classical Music

I listen to alot of classical music–especially modern stuff. Just found this piece. Coolest sounding music I’ve heard in a while–like a madhouse. If you don’t want to sit through the whole thing start listening from the 12:30 mark. Pretty much a ‘mix’, sampling some of the most violent pieces of the past 300 years.

Didn’t really click for me. But then again I don’t listen to modern stuff much. I guess Orff’s ‘O Fortuna’ is the only modern piece that I have enjoyed. Though, the rest of Carmina Burana didn’t really do anything for me.
