In preparation for my Courses talk on KONTAKTE (which I ended up skipping due to lack of time) I watched the British 1972 lecture "4 Criteria of Electronic Music" and basically took notes while watching it. I decided to just clean them up and post them on my blog. Nothing new on my part, but I guess it works as a summary and introduction for any who haven't seen it yet.
I also decided to beef it up with photos from the WDR Studio tour on the last day, since as far as I can tell there is no color collection of photographs of these amazing units on the web...
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!
