|Exquisite Corpses from PS 122||Flip Flops||Exquisite Corpses from PS 122||What Next? Recordings||improvised music played like the classic kid's game where you draw something and then the next person continues the drawing....not being able to see what was drawn before. In this piece, the musicians were able to hear only a portion of what had been played before and then link-up to that in a kind of musical daisy-chain.|
|Karlheinz Stockhausen||Adieu, no. 21 (1966)||Quintette Morages||Valios||This quintet was written in memory of a young musician who died in a car accident. The long silences are said to illustrate the interruption of movement, as had happened at the end of the composer's life. Performed by the Quintette Moragues in 1991.|
