Stockhausen Remembered

Karlheinz Stockhausen died last week. A sad day for electronic music. (And they don’t seem to be making megalomaniac artists like they used to…but maybe that’s not such a bad thing.) I remember hearing pieces such as “Gesang der Jünglinge”, “Kontakte”, “Telemusic”,  “Mantra”, and “Stimmung” for the first time and their impact has certainly continued.  Create Digital Music has put together a nice obit with links to other memorials. See ya in your helicopter in heaven, Herr Stockhausen.
