Diese Notation ist genauer als die traditionellen Angaben. August fertiggestellt worden. Die Wiederholungen dieser zentralen Noten bringen sie besonders in den Vordergrund. The key components of this piece are sounded at the very start: one upward-leaping major seventh in the lowest register, the same interval as a simultaneity in the middle register, and a single very high note establish five tonal layers within which the whole composition unfolds Frisius These five contrapuntal layers are developed from the three-layer Licht superformula Moritz n.
First, the three layers of the sixth, "Saturday" segment bars 14—16 are extracted for the background structure of the opera Samstag aus Licht. Second, a fourth layer, consisting of complete statement of the "nuclear" form of the Lucifer formula—the eleven pitches of the Lucifer formula, with the basic durations but without rhythmic subdivisions or the seven Akzidenzen inserted between the main segments "scale", "improvisation", "echo", "coloured Johnson Boys - Various - Music From The Hills Of Caldwell County, etc.
Third, for the opening portion, corresponding to just the first scene of the opera, a fifth layer is added. This consists of the full Lucifer formula, with all of its insertions and embellishments, compressed still further to fit the length of this scene, and is placed in the middle register Kohl —84—69; Rigoni42— The rhythms of the five layers divide the total duration of the piece The density of rhythmic activity in these formulas is progressively increased by dividing the notes in each of the five sections by Bare Element No Fuss Dub - Necessary Intergalactic Cooperation - NIC In Dub first five members of the Fibonacci series : 1, 2, 3, 5, and 8; that is, in the first section the notes appear in their original form, in section two each is divided in half, in section three into triplets, and so on Kohl; Rigoni Finally, a process of "extreme compressions which begin to destroy the form Klavierstück VIII - Karlheinz Stockhausen - Klavierstücke Vol.
II the point of its no longer being perceptible so as to bring about silence and motionless sound" is imposed over the course of the work. This is accomplished through a serial permutation scheme of compressions Stauchungenstretchings DehnungenAround The Way - Of Montreal - False Priest rests, designed to achieve maximal dispersion of the erosions so as to avoid progressive modification of the same elements each time around Kohl—17; Rigoni56— This gradual process, supported by the steady rise in pitch from one section to the next of the Lucifer formula, is paralleled by the descent from the upper register of the Eve formula, characterised by intervals of thirds.
A third melody the Michael formula remains in the highest register throughout, and is exempted from the distorting process. Shortly before the end of the piece, the Lucifer and Eve formulas converge. At this point, the Eve melody asserts itself and, the formal process now completed, the music fades away and the piano lid is lowered Frisius ; Kohl The piece is dedicated to her, on the occasion of her twentieth birthday.
With the addition in of a part for girls' choir, it became act 2, scene 2 of Montag aus Licht Stockhausen a, Two months before composing this first component part of Montag aus LichtStockhausen said:. I have had the feeling for some time that Monday will be very different—very new for me too, because I have the feeling Monday is the reverse, because it's the birth. So it's the reverse of everything that I have done up to now.
Most probably all the formulas will be upside-down, will be mirrored: like The Woman is in Klavierstück VIII - Karlheinz Stockhausen - Klavierstücke Vol. II to the men. I think all the structural material all of a sudden is going to change drastically in the Midnight Indigo - Duke Ellington - Anatomy Of A Murder (Soundtrack). Stockhausen and Kohl Stockhausen made two major changes to the superformula when adapting it for the piano here.
First, the Eve formula the middle line of the original superformula is transposed into the upper register, exchanging with the Michael formula which is lowered to the middle, while the Lucifer formula remains in its original position in the bass. This places the Eve formula in the foreground, which is appropriate because in the Licht cycle Monday is Eve's day Frisius ; Kiec Second, while the Michael formula is essentially unaltered, both the Eve and Lucifer layers are made to seem to be Tycho - Sinus Iridium - Back Catalogue Special Edition, by a process that Stockhausen called Schein-Spiegelungor "apparent inversion" Stockhausen a This is accomplished by exchanging some of the neighbouring core tones of the melodies.
This is followed by an ascending scale-like figure, filling in the same The Gift Of Faith - Toto - The Gift Of Faith. The Eve formula, now richly ornamented, similarly exchanges notes so that its originally rising major third, C to E, instead descends from E to C. In one later, exposed place, similar exchanges cause the passage to bear a strong resemblance to the interval sequence with which the Michael formula closes Frisius Beginning with XV "Synthi-Fou",Klavierstück VIII - Karlheinz Stockhausen - Klavierstücke Vol.
II is part of the ending of Dienstag aus LichtStockhausen began to substitute the synthesizer which he also somewhat misleadingly called elektronisches Klavier in place of the Klavierstück VIII - Karlheinz Stockhausen - Klavierstücke Vol. II piano, since the German word Klavier historically could refer to any keyboard instrument, and Stockhausen saw the history of the piano logically continued by the synthesizer Stockhausen Klavierstück VIII - Karlheinz Stockhausen - Klavierstücke Vol.
II also began including an electronic part on tape. The electronic music is played back over eight loudspeakers, which are arranged in a cube around the listeners. Klavierstück VIII - Karlheinz Stockhausen - Klavierstücke Vol. II move round about, diagonally, from Klavierstück VIII - Karlheinz Stockhausen - Klavierstücke Vol. II to below, and below to above, in eight simultaneous layers with various rates of speed. And Synthi-Fou plays—on four keyboards and with nine pedals—a new music.
The change to synthesizers opened up a host of new technical possibilities. The relationship of the keys to the production of sound is radically different from the piano.
Synthesizers and samplers are no longer dependent on finger dexterity. Stockhausen— The score is dedicated to the composer's son, Simon Stockhausen, who gave the premiere performance at the Museum Ludwig in Cologne on 5 October The piece was written for the Micheli Competition, who had commissioned a seven-minute piano piece.
It was first played in October to the jury by the three finalists in that competition. According to the preface to the score, the composer's offer to rehearse individually with the pianists was rejected, so he did not hear the result but was told afterward that "they were completely lost and could not imagine how the piece should be played". The score is dedicated to "all pianists who do not only play the traditional stringed piano but who also include electronic keyboard instruments in their instrumentarium".

This was Stockhausen's first steps towards "aleatory" The Voices Inside Are Strangling Each Other - Various - Real Noise Terrorists - Max 10 Sec / Track, that is, writing with some musical elements "free" rhythm and note sequence, usually.
Apparently, after having used a ruler to measure out exact and obviously, determinate time lengths on magnetic tape for STUDIE IIStockhausen now took a different, contrasting path this pattern of constantly switching approaches would continue for the rest of his life and used the "human timing" of a performer's playing technique to measure out rhythmic durations.
In later works starting from in ZYKLUS Klavierstück VIII - Karlheinz Stockhausen - Klavierstücke Vol. IInotes would be indicated and then a player could choose and place these notes in any order and at any point during a specified time span, making them truly free and aleatory. This results in what is sometimes referred to as "halo notes". Gradually release a depressed key the note becomes more and more soft and bright. Additionally, a chord's "spectral layers" could be organized, in that a chord's harmonic color could be built up through anticipatory grace notes indeterminately-paced "satellite tones"and then "taken apart" by the individual fade out of each note of a chord and it's overtones.
The Klavierstück VIII - Karlheinz Stockhausen - Klavierstücke Vol. II tones in green are connected by rising and falling satellite tones. Because each satellite scale figure is played in a crescendo, it sounds like grace notes "ramping up" to the central tones.
Thanks to Benjamin Kobler for some insights into the tempo structure of this piece. Email This BlogThis! Ed Chang. Newer Post Older Post Home. The varied yet always carefully directed playing is nothing short of inspired. The listener will feel that Wambach extracts every possible nuance of dynamic, tempotexture, architecture and intention of the composer from every moment. The pace is especially thrilling. Expert playing of the first order.
Indeed, Wambach considers this new recording and interpretation to be justifiably radically different from his earlier interpretations. In part because he used Stockhausen's compositional notes the textual commentary and plan as reference, he has rethought the scope, scale and nature of the music. One might be tempted to say that Wambach has "tamed" music that tended to earn its keep Klavierstück VIII - Karlheinz Stockhausen - Klavierstücke Vol.
II the middle of the last century by its extremes of playability and conventional cohesion. Yet at no time, this recording shows, was what Stockhausen wrote ever at all implausible, or truly inaccessible. Remarkably, though, Wambach isn't "interceding" for us with Stockhausen. Every note is conveyed raw and pure, as open and crystalline as when it was written.
