Some links to listening from this morning’s lecture

Edgard Varere’s Poeme Electroninique … the precursor for our conversation on “What is music?”

Pierre Henry’s “Symphony for a Man Alone”


“I believe that the [tape] recorder is currently the best instrument for the composer who really wants to create by ear for the ear.”

“It is necessary to destroy music”.

Karlheinz Stockhausen’s “elektronische musik”, Studie II (1954):

Pauline Oliveros, we listened to several tracks in lecture, but I wanted you to hear music made in the underground cistern, with 60+ seconds of reverb!
