Piano Aquieu, Stars of the Lid
Song you want played, and why?
It’s hard to pick one song for this, but hearing this piece (and the album) seemed like one of the first times I found music that extended human experience and into someplace else. It’s like the composers have disappeared into it – they’ve given themselves over to a larger force. It’s also just very peaceful and beautiful, and it doesn’t require listeners to respond in any particular way, unlike a lot of music used in memorials.
