Karlheinz Stockhausen (August 22, 1928 – December 5, 2007)

The great electronic & experimental music composer and performer
died last week. This is 'In Memoriam' for him.

The music on this record is quite near to so called free jazz, or even worse.
Banging of hammers and blowing car horns and screaming of
short wave receiver... - more like a sound event, not music in
the original meaning of the word.
But interesting that someone, famous composer like Stockhausen did
this kind of experiments in the late 60's.
Later his music was quite differend.
