The Devils Staircase

György Ligeti’s “L’escalier du diable” (“Devil’s Staircase”).
This is piece is famous for its 'ffffffff' and Shepard's Scale. (it's as if the piece is climbing up and up without stopping) I assume that the Devil allusion is even more evident by the use of "The Devil's Interval", about 4:13 into the piece.
