Modern classical music. (Warning: if you think everything after Brahms is rubbish, you probably will not enjoy these. Especially the second one.)
The first is a wind quintet written about halfway through this year.
The second is a piece for the string cohort of a symphony orchestra (finished last Friday!), with each part being independent.Both played by my notation software, so some effects (col legno bowing, stopped horn) are not heard.
The string piece is a textural piece that sounds not unlike some Ligeti or Xenakis.

I love modern music-- I'm listening to the wind quintet now, and I think it's great. I'd love to hear it played by a real quintet! My favorite thing is the way it sounds so much like different types of wind. Really, really nice.

Nice stuff. I really liked the first one. :D

I wish I could compose music like that, but I have been playing rock and blues so long my brain just goes I -----------IV---------I--------------V----IV----I (insert turn around).

Put VI in there and you can sound like the '50.
