RE: Stockhausen's "Stimmung" great vox Re: Sort of OT: Bjork's new cd MEDULLA... and looping?

Now you sparked my interest...I had thought Mr Stockhausen passed away 
years ago. I find it very interesting that he is still doing experimental 
music. In other words age hasn't stopped him... There is no reason for him 
to stop of course, it seems that some stop doing thier passion after a 
certain age. I plan to go to the grave doing some form of electronic music.

that was exciting.

even though Stockhausen is not my favorite composer, he sure has 
ideas, and he is still incredibly creative and busy at age 76. I have the
privilege to live right next to him ... he lives a mile from here in the
small town of Kuerten near Cologne, Germany. Since his 70th birthday he 
a week of seminars and concerts every summer. Many students and 
musicians from all over the globe come to attend, learn, and perform. A
month ago, looper Harold Schellinx from Paris came and stayed at my place
and we went to some seminars and incredible concerts. You can read his
report (and see some of my photos) from this year's Stockhausen days at

Harold's work, listen to his vintage 1980 loops at
