The Magic of the Cities.
Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer
Karlheinz Stockhausen «Gesang der Jünglinge»
Working on the electronic composition «GESANG DER JÜNGLING» was founded on the concept of harmonizing sung tones with electronically generated tones. (...) At certain points in the composition, the sung tones are understood as words; at other points, they have only the value of sounds. Between these extremes are reached different levels of word-related clarity. Karlheinz Stockhausen.
