Is this the same as "Twinkies" Takemitsu, like "Peaches" Petraeus?

Huge Takemitsu fan here. He combined the harmony of Messiaen with the timbre of Boulez and the atmosphere of Debussy in a way all his own. I didn't nominate his works in the decades games much primarily because I didn't expect much support, but I love even his more minor works, and I'm willing to spend time with anything he wrote.

I felt that I really understood his music only after I understood the way time works in traditional Japanese art. Rhythm in Takemitsu's music is not felt as a regular pulse as in most Western music, nor as in a divided and chopped way, as in Messiaen and Boulez, but as time, flowing at its own pace, with events occurring from moment to moment, stopping in between to allow the vibrations to settle. I feel that this is something truly unique in Western music, and I'm glad that Takemitsu gave us so many great works to enjoy.
