Sufjan Stevens is officially annoying

Indie rock "composer" Sufjan Stevens is at it again! This time he's writing a seven-movement, 30-minute orchestral piece about the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. (Very deep sigh.) "It's definitely very busy," Stevens told New York Magazine. "The piece is about constant motion and repetition. A lot of it is written in canon form, so there are repetitive sequences of chords and melodies that start to overlap and form a round. There are fugue elements as well. It introduces themes and then deconstructs them later on." (Another very deep sigh.) The "Let's kick Sufjan's ass" line starts here!
