GBSR Duo & Ian Dearden – Stockhausen: Cosmic Pulses
The ground-breaking d&b Soundscape surround-sound system offers an opportunity to hear the movement of sound in three of Stockhausen’s most ambitious late electronic works with revolutionary clarity. We welcome the brilliant GBSR Duo and Ian Dearden for a unique 21st century presentation of these works.
From the explosive Klavierstück XV SYNTHI-FOU for multiple sampler keyboards to the beatific, posthumously-realised STRAHLEN, Stockhausen’s version of Klavierstück XIX for ten channels of electronically-treated vibraphones, GBSR present the bookend masterpieces of Stockhausen’s electronic keyboard oeuvre, all before Stockhausen’s last electronic composition, the visionary and controversial 24-layered octaphonic monster COSMIC PULSES.
This event will last approximately 2 hours, including an interval.
