Stimmungen: Das Vokale in der elektronischen Musik (Podiumsdiskussion)

Panel discussion
Date created
On the the fifty-year anniversary of the creation of Karlheinz Stockhausen’s »Gesang der Jünglinge,« ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics will take the occasion to think aloud about the role of the human voice in today’s digital context via commissioned works, concerts, and discussions. Stockhausen’s epochal work hereby serves as an important stimulus to present the latest developments in digitally supported or even digitally produced vocal music. After the pioneering works by Karlheinz Stockhausen, Pierre Boulez, Mauricio Kagel, György Ligeti, Luigi Nono, Dieter Schnebel, and Pierre Henry, vocal music took on greater significance in contemporary composing and achieved true heights in acoustic art, which did not go unnoticed by audiences.
