Karlheinz Stockhausen Trans / Bassetsu Trio / Menschen Hört / Unsichtbare Chöre


Awakening from a dream, Stockhausen noted the basic idea for Trans: string players in line, facing the audience, with four groups of wind and percussion players behind them. He later added recordings of a balinese loom and rail track points. Trans (originally Jenseits, “Beyond”) is a meditation on the “other side” where music may be whole, encompassing relationships and mysteries.
