ABOUT THE PIECE:

Listening to Röckdöts is supposed to feel like drinking from a firehose—a liquid onslaught of ever-changing sounds, rhythms, and ideas, with faint (and not-sofaint) echoes of popular music, jazz, Zappa, Nancarrow, Brahms, and, in the second movement, the medieval troubadours. The old gods are dead and everything is now permitted and so the obvious thing is to try to do everything all at once.
