I've heard a few recordings of this piece, and this one stands out as probably the best. It's played exhuberantly by Bang on a Can, who have obviously paid great attention to how the different repeating sections can line up to create moments of impenetrable mystery and off-kilter joy and almost every other emotion in between. It's a great work and it can't fail with such great instrumental skill. I just wish it were a little longer!
