SAMPLE & HOLD : stockhausen / telemusik

This 1966 classic of electronic music has always been a favorite of mine. As it unfolds and evolves like an unerring dream we hear snippets of ethnic musics, gongs, burbles, bleeps, and shockingly expressive sonic manipulations that are, at once, immediate and transformative, meditative and adrenaline-inducing. When I first heard the DG recording I knew I wanted to go THERE!
