    Ionisation is captivatingly bizarre...apparently it was what inspired Frank Zappa to write. Are most of his compositions that unsettlingly avant-garde? Only person comparable that comes to mind is Penderecki.

    When I don't take my medication and my mind races, I play 'Ionisation' and 'Ameriques' on repeat. Exhilarating. It is cerebral sex. Beats any other stimulant.
