Modern classical: Tense, brash. Lots of action, with instruments cutting diagonal lines across each others' paths. These are ensemble works, with no particular instrument featured. Lots of percussion, though. No FCCs.

1-9 are continuous but mostly work as separate tracks.
1- Twilight mischief led by buzzy flute. Becomes a loud, intense midtempo.
2- Dire horns. Mid/fast groaning, dissonant ascending scale. Slow 2nd half, still dire.
3- Clarinet leads a poking flutter of sounds. Soft horns later.
4- Soft-falling piano. Gets rocky, powerful. Quiet violin ending.
5- Warped, dissonant horns. Then tumbling percussion, cool!
6- Swirling sounds punctuated by loud brass punches. A jumbled rush later. SEGUES into:
7- Sparse shrill tones, hard-edged but far apart. Loud slow motion.
8- Fast scribbles, middling intensity. Lingering. SEGUES to:
9- Blossoming, opening slowness in bitter tones. Big swells of sound. Drawn-out ending; cut it off around -0:30.

10- (15:01) Severe, intense group piece. Opens with brassy popping, fluttery airy violin (I love the violin sound here), and angular harp, an anticipatory sound overall. Violent after -9:00. Ends in a quieter but still tense mode.

11- (20:45) Tense jitters, first on pianos in three shimmering layers, then in full group with lots of percussion and some electronics.
... From -8:20 on would make a good excerpt: it's a spread-out series of loud chaotic events, dynamic but with long breaks powered by a subtle rustling sound. Inconclusive, wandering ending.
