John Maus – Quantum Leap

[staring at the sun]

interesting enough to lift straight from wikipedia:

John Maus (born February 23, 1980) is an American composer. He grew up in Austin, Minnesota, and studied music at the California Institute of the Arts. He later went on to study philosophy at the European Graduate School, in Saas Fee Switzerland, and in 2011 is working towards a PhD in Political Philosophy. Prior to completing his degree from the European Graduate School, he was expelled from the university for malfeasance relating to its annual “Spirit Parade of Eternity”. He has said that as a college student he was interested in experimental music and performance art involving music, such as the work of John Cage. This shifted though, when he met and began to work with and alongside Ariel Pink, and took a greater interest in Pop Music, and later became interested in Baroque musical compositions.
