By the way, nice title for this thread, Cato.
Where can I buy a sound swallower? I wonder if he ever followed up with the idea and put them on the shelve of an internet Karl-Heinz-Öko-Store. All kinds of areas in my town I want soundless! Thanks for the interview post!
I have an interview of Stockhausen when he was in his early 60's, and he comes across as rather matter-of-fact about lunatic things e.g. his obsession with basset horns,
From my point of view, an obsession with basset horns is quite understandable, commendable in fact. But isn't Stockhausen more obsessed with the basset horn player?
I have indeed wondered about the cultic aspect of Stockhausen and his basset-horn beauty Kathinka Pasveer, along with the others (Suzanne Stephens, etc.)For pictures and and interesting commentary: http://home.swipnet.se/sonoloco10/stockhausen/39.html
The basset-horn beauty (basset-horn, clarinet, bass clarinet) is Suzanne Stephens, Kathinka Pasveer is the flute beauty (flute, alto flute, picccolo flute).
Via a great blog called The Rambler, here's Paul Hillier in The Guardian, talking about Stimmung.
Interesting article, Bruce. I used to love Stimmung, but probably haven't heard it in 30+ years. Hillier's new recording might prove very interesting, indeed! Thanks for the heads up.
Who else but the man who accepted the National Book Award for Gravity's Rainbow on behalf of Thomas Pynchon?
Stockhausen's own web-site has just added a CD of his latest electronic piece, Cosmic Pulses, to the roster. www.stockhausen.org
Scroll down to see that as part of Klang Stockhausen has actually composed with regular notes on regular music paper a Veni, Creator Spiritus!
