Stockhausen in Depth

Part of Stockhausen: Cosmic Prophet

Discover the transformative influence Stockhausen had on contemporary music in this study day with Robert Worby.

Electronic music. Serialism. Radios. Spatial music. Tapes. Music for every day of the week. Music for every hour of the day. These concepts just scratch the surface of 20th-century composer Karlheinz Stockhausen and the transformative influence he had on modern music.

In this study day complementing three weekends of Stockhausen music at Southbank Centre, we explore the composer's’ life and works with experts and with live music.

This study day complements performances of Stockhausen’s works on Tuesday 21 & Wednesday 22 May, Saturday 1 & Sunday 2 June, and Saturday 8 & Sunday 9 June.

The project is generously supported by The London Community Foundation and Cockayne – Grants for the Arts, and The Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation.
