Karlheinz Stockhausen was a pioneer of avant-garde composition who passed away in December following a career in music that spanned 50+ years.
Broken Symmetry will perform original music inspired by Stockhausen, as well as interpret one of his pieces, "unlimited" from the 7 Days Box set. They will also perform a piece featuring short wave samples, downloaded from Stockhausen's web site, made available for others to create with. Instrumentation will include synths, samples, tape manipulation, sax, gong, radio, spoken word, etc.
The PD Players will perform '10th Planet' as a tribute to the Stockhausen legacy.
We devoted the most January Eyedrum podcast to a review of Stockhausen's career. You can download that show to your mp3 player (or listen online) by clicking here.
