Speaking of Frank Martin, the music of the sadly neglected Quebecois composer Jacques Hetu (1938-2010), which I've been beginning to explore recently, reminds me in places of the Swiss composer's difficult-to-pin-down style.
Hetu's hybrid style of Frank Martin, Olivier Messiaen, Henri Dutilleux and other Frenchmen(esp) is unique and unlike any other music you may hear. (He studied with the latter 2.) I think "intoxicating" would not be innacurate descriptor.
