Hmm, if you are finding you like Kaikhosru Shapurji Sorabji's compositional art, you might check out his Opus clavicembalisticum performed by British pianist John Ogdon. Personally, I could not get through it very far, but I really, really tried! Knowing Ogdon, however, this would be his "cup o' tea." I had to laugh when I read your comment: "noise like this." I try to always remember: different strokes for different folks and I certainly respect that about other's choices in the ever-growing world of music.

Maybe the first 78 variations are easier? :D
Black lives matter.
