Editor RONNIE NOBLE
Introduced by David Jones Stockhausen's Stimmung
' I am not making " My Music " but transcribing the vibrations I receive. I am a radio receiver ...' ' Play a vibration in the rhythm of your smallest particle. Play a vibration in the rhythm of the universe ...'
These statements come from the German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen , who, like the astrologists, believes that we are now leaving the age of the intellect and entering a spiritual age, where the accent wiU fall on the intuitive. To him, the composer is a kind of prophet, leading us towards a higher consciousness. [n Review Stockhausen talks about his music, with excerpts from Stimmung (' Atmosphere ') which has been described as one of the great landmarks of Western music.
