Man, that hurts.

Passed over for a MacArthur Genius Grant... again. [kicks rocks, pouts]

Well, at least you can hear one of the recipients below:

As reported by NPR news, "Fransisco Núñez founded the Young People's Chorus of New York City in 1988, the same year he graduated from New York University. The chorus now tours internationally, has commissioned more than 50 pieces by contemporary composers."

The piece below, "(Le) Poisson Rouge", starts out a bit slow and dark, but there's some great moments up front: breaking glass, droning cellos... yum!
