Hey everyone. I'm looking for a little help in sourcing something. I'm currently doing an MA in creative sound design and for my final project I'm working with stockhausen's octophonic speaker setup. I was wondering if anyone knew of a way I could source a version of oktophonie that will play in it's intended format. I've only been able to find the stereo versions of the work. I know people still do performances of the piece so surely it's available somewhere right?
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!
