According to surveys, men who dye their hair are more likely to use online services, drive sports cars, listen to jazz, and read books. Men who don’t dye their hare are more likely to attend tractor pulls, drive a station wagon, go hunting and collect stamps.

I like more classical. Mozart, Beehthoven, Bach, and then I really like the 50's and 60's era. Beatles and the like.

I like Yo Yo Ma a lot... Is that what you're thinking?

Yo Yo Ma plays a lot of really old stuff, like the Bach Cello suites (definitely his most famous thing).

I mean like Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Avro Part, and others. Contemporary classical music.

I'm not familiar with any of them, but next time I'm at the library I'm going to go and take a look for those. *writes them down*

All these composers are known as 'minimalists' whose music tends to feature repetitive rhythms with subtle, slowly moving changes, so that you get the feeling of something unfolding. It's accessible music that gets better each time you listen to it. They are all popular; Part is probably the most famous living composer in the world today.

Mm... repetetive things generally really get on my nerves.

You must hate pop and rock music then, too?

Generally. With a few exceptions, but over all.

Ypu can't escape repetition: the world is full of it. Things like breathing, heartbeats, waking, sleeping, eating, working, your son's birthdays, sunrises, sunsets, seasons, la la la... These things are impossible to ignore, and you may as well enjoy them, no?

Rejects old bait

All music is about the rhythms of the world, and all rhythm relies to some degree on repetition.

Basically, I don't believe you!

Oh? I thought he was included with them, though personally I think his music is quite different. I must listen to him again - it's been a long time.
