    Glenn Branca is known for bridging the world of avant-garde rock with the minimalist principles of 20th-century classical. His symphonies written for large ensembles of electric guitar are unique in the history of music, and his compositions--based on microtonal scales, drones, and waves of dynamics--create entrancing, often disconcerting effects on the listener.
    Branca's SYMPHONY NO. 3 is generally considered one of his best. The piece involves massed guitars and keyboards holding repetitive patterns, while subtly shifting toward an oceanic climax. This comes recommended to followers of composers like Steve Reich, Terry Riley, and Morton Feldman, as well as fans of early Sonic Youth.
