Something for Thursday

I heard this piece when I got in the car yesterday to come home from work. It’s a piece by Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi, with whom I was entirely unfamiliar until I turned on the car and his music came out of the speakers. The fact that it was raining at that exact moment heightened the effect of this music, which has a droning and hypnotic effect as repeated motifs swirl in and out, ostinato-like, over orchestral effects of increasing density and beauty.

I’m going to have to explore Mr. Einaudi’s music more, I think. Here is “Experience” from the album In a Time Lapse.
