No, not at all. That's just what I'm familiar with, that's all. I'm interested in all kinds of atonal music. (And all kinds of music, for that matter.)

Stockhausen's not my thing either. I do enjoy bits of Varese, but Stockhausen, Cage, and Xenakis are too far out for my taste.

Sounds pretty clearly tonal to me, though with a few odd twists that are more passing notes than anything else. Also, the instrumentation is very abnormal.
