#57 The Smell of Frozen Landscape

Paint it black and white: post-catastrophic landscape, frozen to death; ruptured streets, collapsed buildings.

It's somehow straussian (Richard, not Leo), perversely post-romantic. And then suddenly–absolute dragaway: it's not real, it's not happening. Party! (5'49'') Let's rock'n'roll!

Composer: Michael Daugherty
