Karlheinz Stockhausen Has Died

One of the great pioneers of electronic music, Karlheinz Stockhausen, has died in his home at the age of 79. The only news piece I've seen about it so far is in German, but for those of you who can parse the language of Nietzsche, Goethe, and Stockhausen, here's a link.

The San Francisco Contemporary Music Players will perform Stockhausen's "Kontakte" for piano, percussion, and electronics on Monday, March 17, 2008 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Stockhausen's own sound engineer, Bryan Wolf, is coming from Germany to participate in the performance. www.sfcmp.org
