 Why am I busy with Stockhausen?

A contribution of Adorján took me to this question. For obviously there are quite different motivations to spend one's time with a composer, and these differences lead to different interpretations.
In my case: It is the religious meaning of all his works that interests me. In the beginning it was the fact that for the composer himself that religious meaning was independent of religious texts - I wanted to investigate how that could be, and it fascinated me because for a religious person too all his life, from very ordinary occupations to very important and meaningfull ones, has a religious connotation. In the course of time my interest shifted to LICHT, where the religious meaning is more obvious than for instance for a work like PLUS - MINUS. And here what fascinates me is the basic fact that for Stockhausen every day is a day "from LIGHT", even dark and negative days. That is far more than a mere thought - a thought you can understand in a minute. It is a way of looking at the world and at your own life, it is a way of living, and that you have to practise for a lifetime. In this respect the LICHT-cycle is an important and somehow permanent inspiration, and this approach guides my understanding and my way to investigate.
What is the motive for my research - for my listening to that music? I think that is a basic question, and therefore I am interested in what other members think about that! (Sorry for my English - but I hope you get the meaning...)

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! Thomas Ulrich
