At this precise moment, Artctic Monkeys and Johnny Cash, but these things are always changing in my case. I like a lot of things, Shpongle (just to name something) is great new find for me personally.

I like namedropping, but I guess I'm not that good at it.

Yet another list? Shocked

I don´t have any favourite composers really. I like a lot of different music and whenever I make a list the list will become so damned long. As for proper composers or not.. I tend to think jazzheads can "write" music too and hey.. I even think makers of improvised music can be called composers too. Hmm, in some cases I think a band can "write" music as well. Shocked

An embarassing incomplete list

Pergolesi
Fartein Valen
Bach
Ligeti
Steve Reich
Robert Carver
John Coltrane
Vigleik Storaas
Christopher Orczy
Thelonious Monk
Led Zeppelin ( Page/Plant )
Burt Bacharach
Arnold Schoenberg
VDGG/PH
Robert Hagstrøm
Harald Hoffmann
Brian Williams
Antonio Bibalo
Berio
Philip Glass
Vaughn Williams
Prokofiev
Olav Anton Thommesen
Can ( most excellent krauties )
Arne Nordheim
Geir Tveitt
Satie
Hindemith
Poulenc
Bartok
Knut Nystedt
Michael Travlos
Piotr Rubik
Graham Bowers
Chopin
Kurt Weill
Liszt
Shoshtakovich
Jimi Hendrix
Serafini
Charles Ives

..and .. you know who you are .. Very Happy

hmm.. and I even think the noodles by a certain mr. Blue Hell can be called
1. music
2. compositions
3. great stuff

..punish me..

Hard to think of a favorite... depends on the genre. What comes to mind are:

Palestrina
Byrd
Frescobaldi
Sweelinck
Johann Sebastian Bach
Beethoven
Mahler
Schoenberg
Ives
Cage
Honneger
Gershwin
Subotonick
Shostakovich
Ginestera
Reich
Barber
Wendy Carlos

I am also inspired by Native American Music and the realizations of Ancient Aztec and Mayan music by "America Indigina".
