Stockhausen's Studie II - new realisation

Yes, many people have made realisations of Stockhausen's Studie II, but few have used tape editing to make the sine wave groups and even fewer have used a real reverberation chamber to make the raw sound materials. My new realisation uses historical techniques and combines these where appropriate, with digital editing and in some cases with the latest in digital modelling to produce a new version of the piece which is as close to the score as possible, whilst trying to increase the frequency response widen the spectrum to really here all that was written.

The premiere of my version will happen on 2nd November 2013 in the Reid Hall, Edinburgh, along with the 4 channel version of Ligeti's Artikulation, and Stockhausen's Gesang der Jünglinge, with Simon Smith performing Stockhausen's Klavierstücke VII, and IX, and several short pieces by Ligeti.
