Stockhausen Syndrome

The Southbank Centre is about to embark on Klang, a tribute to the work of Karlheinz Stockhausen, music pioneer and all-round tune genius, and to promote it, they’ve come up with this spiffy little toy, that takes up to three seconds of sound and lets you stretch it out and generate new music. Endless fun, if you’re that way inclined.

I had a pop, snipping three seconds out of Dexter Wansel’s “First Light In The Morning” and making a wee dreamy soundscape. Although to be fair, I think that’s the general effect it has on everything. You can listen to it here.

And to finish up, your chance to hear all of Dexter Wansel’s track, an intricate and exhilirating slice of Philadelphia instrumental soul. Breathtaking stuff. Listen to it at dawn if you ever get the chance.

One thought on “Stockhausen Syndrome

  1. Eno’s lighting up a joss stick as we speak. Good work, men!

    Remember, though: “Stockhausen serves Imperialism” (apparently). Naughty.
