Bernhard Gander (1969, Austrian)

Not that I wish to generalize, but there’s often something about Austria and Austrian composers. The music of Bernhard Gander (Bunny Gamesby Klangforum Wien on Kairos 0012682KAI) sounds like Hannibal Lecter devouring Madonna. No doubt most listeners will hate it. I find the “let-your-hair-down-and-don’t-bar-any-punches” attitude very entertaining (and anyway I’m always in for a good din, like bangin’ on the tin lid of a trash can).
