For the Philadelphia production of all of KLANG, we put together a book with essays by Paul Miller, Joe Drew, Esther Morgan-Ellis, and Thomas Patteson. It also includes program notes for all of the Hours, pictures, and illustrations. We printed around 100 extras, and we're selling them for $5 here. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Stockhausen-KLA...rs/153003744592 . We kept the cost as low as possible to make sure anyone who wanted one could have one.
Essays Include: Music at the Cutting Edge - by Esther Morgan-Ellis Stockhausen's Theological Evolution - by Joseph Drew Between Eros and Agape - by Paul Miller Stockhausen's Systems - by Thomas Patteson The Spatial Dimension in KLANG - Esther Morgan-Ellis Collaborators, Interpreters, and Muses - Esther Morgan-Ellis Notes on Each of the Hours - by Joseph Drew
Hmm, my edit to add international shipping didn't save for whatever reason. Thanks for your patience, I've tried again and it seems to have worked, but please notify me if you have the same problem again and I'll try something different!
I continue to be unable to buy it, unfortunately. Although the page now says it ships worldwide, eBay does not allow me to enter an Australian address - it immediately changes the address back to the default USA. This may be an issue with eBay, following Amazon USA's decision to no longer deliver to Australia because of our government's tax laws. Is there any other way to purchase this other than through eBay?
Hi! Sorry you're still having troubles. I'm working on finding another service. Meanwhile, I made a different account to see if I could make it ship to Australia and did successfully set up an order, so possibly it's working now? Or maybe your "auto fill" settings are changing it back? I will let you know when the other website is set up.
Ok, so since it's being such a hassle, anyone who wants a book can just email me your shipping address at email@example.com and I'll just send you a Paypal request for whatever the shipping ends up costing! Thanks!
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!
