Video of the Day 28/2011: Karlheinz Stockhausen (2)

Dear Readers,

today it is again time to listen to the sounds of a real (!) musical genius: Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928-2007) . He is the (!) pioneer in all fields of modern experimental music (from electronic music to all kinds of instrumental music).  Listen to a composition called "Trans for orchestra and tape" (1971) . Stockhausen wrote about this piece: "During the night of the 9th-10th December, I dreamed TRANS. The next morning, I noted - using key words - what I have heard and seen in the dream. (...) The work was written from July 17th to Semptember 4th 1971".
