Recording Sessions #11: Karlheinz Stockhausen
Talk and Demonstration
Studie II (electronic music 1954)
Kontakte (electronic music 1958-60)
Speaker: Dr Sean Williams
Sound projection: Dr Sean Williams and Giovanni La Rovere
Delighted to host two great pieces of earlier electronic music Studie II and Kontakte by Kailheinz Stockhausen on this edition of Recording Sessions (concert series).
Dr Sean Williams from the Open University will demonstrate some of the devices and techniques used in the creation of Karlheinz Stockhausen’s ‘Studie II’ and ‘Kontakte’. ‘Studie II’ was the first piece of electronic music to have a realisation score, and ‘Kontakte’ remains one of the most significant and intense pieces of electronic music ever made. The talk and demonstration will be followed by a concert featuring both pieces projected in 4-channels.
