Default A blank slate

Suppose a person born deaf is healed. He/she has never heard music in any form and doesn't even have a concept of what it is--a truly blank slate. What is the first piece of music you show him/her? Do you go with something happy? Sad? Cryptic? Simple? Complex?

Igor Stravinsky - The Right of Spring.

*Rite, dummy. I think some blues would do if you wanted to show them something lighter that doesn't suck. Leadbelly's Where Did You Sleep Last Night? is a good contender.
