Stockhausen Stimmung: Collegium Vocale Köln

This is the first recording of Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Stimmung, actually comissioned by the Collegium Vocale Köln in 1968, and recorded in 1969. Stockhausen wrote it in the US after he met (and taught to) minimalist composer La Monte Young… It seems that the drone influence was strong on him on this composition, for it does not sound like other piece I know of Stockhausen.

This rip was made after a mint vinyl disc out of the ORTF archives and I pretty much appreciate the cracking sounds of the disc along with the hummings of the piece. Play it loud! ;)

Je cherchais cette ancienne et belle version depuis un bon moment. Mille mercis de l'avoir ainsi mise à disposition. C'est celle que j'écoutais en boucle dans les années 70. Du coup, mon disque craquait lui aussi très harmonieusement... Encore merci.
