seems a lot of VGM composers get recognition here. hmm, that perhaps needs some working on, in my book. i tend to like the composers of today who are all about innovation, hence my earlier choices of kapustin and rzewski. add crumb, rautavaara, ligeti, bolcom, adams, and many others.

i cant emphasize enough the importance of investigating and recognizing the living legends of composition today. if we want a future in music, in my opinion. we must focus on the present as well, not just the past.

I really like Rzewski
i'm learning his 3rd north american ballade (down by the riverside) and it's amazing... I've seen these ballades performed at some competitions, and the 4th (winsboro cotton mill blues) is definitely wonderful

Does Philip Glass count?
Lol, he's the only one that comes to mind for me.
