Karlheinz Stockhausen – ‘Kontakte’

Karlheinz Stockhausen, composer, was born on August 22 1928 and died on December 5 2007. He was one of the most innovative composers of his time. His work is very interesting and should be listened to carefully. In his compositions there’s a lot of rhythm as well as sounds of electronic instruments and concrete sounds of the surrounding world together with the well known classical symphony orchestra textures arranged with his own personal style.
He was one of the first 20th century composers who included synthetically produced sounds and synthesizers into his compositions. He is considered as one of the fathers of the electronic music.
