I'm going to guess George Crumb.

The attached piece does not look quite as crazy as that wild stuff from John Stump, but maybe it is?

This looks like the handwriting of Michael Finissy. Not sure which piece it could be though.

Scott is right again! This is from George Crumb's Makrokosmos Volume I: Twelve Fantasy-Pieces after the Zodiac for amplified piano. The unknown is an excerpt from piece no 11, titled, Dream Images (Love-Death Music) (Gemini).

Damn, I'm good!!! :D

Actually, I was familiar with Crumbs notation for a movement of "Ancient Voices of Children". It was played at a piano camp when I was a "couple of years younger" and in high school. I was intrigued by the circular notation and the hand writing, that the manuscript conveyed.
