Clearly we have very different emphases, but I doubt your doubt. I think these different approaches may all contribute to advancing our understanding of Stockhausen (insofar as understanding might be of value)—at least I hope that my approach of listening attentively to the music and drawing conclusions from what we hear may be fruitful from time to time. Your approach, Robin, seems to emphasize the environment in which Stockhausen worked and how that influencing his thinking. Naturally that can yield useful results, as well. Just how the US involvement in IRCAM helps us to appreciate the version of KATHINKAs GESANG with electronic music remains beyond my comprehension, but perhaps you would care to elaborate on this?

I feel that it could be useful to have a discussion-forum on the music of Stockhausen. There are so many people from all over the world, young and old, learned and eager to get into contact with this musical world: musicologists, composers, musicians, music lovers; people who plan concerts - who write books or have to give lectures and so on. So there should be much stuff, many ideas that we can share. And when we have open questions, there may be people who studied just that and could give a hint or a stimulus.
A problem might be the English language, but i feel that is the only possibility that many people who are interested can participate. And we can exercise tolerance to mistakes!
