EKOENSEMBLE “Kontakte” Karlheinz Stockhausen

In the early 2006 I was called by a friend of mine musician, Pietro Pompei (Ekoensemble) who was working on this music project to play live Kontakte, a celebrated electronic music work by Karlheinz Stockhausen. He was rehearsing in his studio and he asked me to shoot a sort of backstage. When I was in the studio I understood the complexity of the project and I decide to turn the backstage in something appropriate.

The video was shoot with a Sony HANDYCAM with a homemade 35mm adapter.

Music: Karlheinz Stockhausen

Kontakte (“Contacts”) is a celebrated electronic music work by Karlheinz Stockhausen, widely acknowledged by critics as one of the most important but also controversial composers of the 20th and early 21st centuries.
Kontakte was realized in 1958–60 at the Westdeutscher Rundfunk (WDR) electronic-music studio in Cologne
