Stockhausen’s Aus den Sieben Tagen Available For Free Download

Karlheinz Stockhausen at Old Billingsgate Mark...
Image via Wikipedia

From Insubordinations:

Aus den Sieben Tagen is a collection of pieces to be improvised after the very concise and apparently metaphysical instructions of the Master. But far from delivering us a strange joke or an esoteric manifesto, Stockhausen explores in fifteen pieces the main questions of composition, improvisation, art, its transmission and its origin, the status of the artist, his way of life and thought, the stage, etc.
