KARLHEINZ STOCKHAUSEN - Musical Genius

Postby Teddy Dupont » Fri Dec 21, 2007 1:11 pm

A belated appreciation of that astonishing musical innovator Karlheinz Stockhausen. A man who achieved fame by drawing lines on a piece of paper, throwing dried rabbits turds over them then interweaving the result into electronically processed recordings of his next door neighbour farting into a bucket after a particularly strong vindaloo.

You really do have to admire someone who can achieve world renown in the field of music by taking the piss out of the general public.

Ah, Karl Heinz57 Shitehousen....

I have recently transcribed this work and arranged it for Mandolin.... damn tricky to get the bucket fart triplets down... I have the album he did with Cabbo...the one which was also the worlds first scratch and sniff gypsy jazz album..pm me if you want a copy.....must be worth a fiver?? no maybe not.

Pretty close but I don't think you have truly captured the full spirit of the piece in this particular transcription although I feel your positioning of the rabbits is perfect.

Thanks Thrip, but you know perfectly well that's the post rabbit shit period arrangement for sextet of Harrier jump jets. Merry Christmas anyway.
