stockhausen kontakte vinyl lp


New Condition


Rare Sealed copy. Pressed on 180g vinyl and in hand-numbered editions of 500. This is number 438.


Intense, pre-60s recordings from pioneer Karlheinz Stockhausen – his first piece to use both electronics and traditional instruments together. Marking a turning point in his career, ‘Kontakt’ shows the influences of American avant-garde jazz and composers like John Cage had on his composition. The musicians played alongside a tape recording of percussion sounds that have been altered by different electronic devices.
