Stockhausen: Cosmic Pulses

GBSR Duo & Ian Dearden

Sound Unwrapped

Karlheinz Stockhausen Klavierstück XV SYNTHI-FOU for multiple electronic keyboards and eight-channel electronic music
STRAHLEN for vibraphone and ten-channel electronic music
COSMIC PULSES eight-channel electronic music
GBSR Duo & Sound Intermedia
George Barton percussion
Siwan Rhys keyboards
Ian Dearden sound design

The groundbreaking d&b Soundscape surround-sound system offers an opportunity to hear the movement of sound in three of Stockhausen’s most ambitious late electronic works with revolutionary clarity. We welcome the brilliant GBSR Duo and Ian Dearden for a unique 21st century presentation of these works.


From the explosive Klavierstück XV SYNTHI-FOU for multiple sampler keyboards to the beatific, posthumously-realised STRAHLEN, Stockhausen’s version of Klavierstück XIX for ten channels of electronically-treated vibraphones, GBSR present the bookend masterpieces of Stockhausen’s electronic keyboard oeuvre, all before Stockhausen’s last electronic composition, the visionary and controversial 24-layered octaphonic monster COSMIC PULSES.

This event will last approximately 2 hours, including an interval.
