Stockhausen’s Stimmung at the Barts Pathology Museum

Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Stimmung 

Barts Pathology Museum | 1st February 2019 7pm | 2nd February 2019 4pm

‘The future is a portal inward, what we find there will be computational and ancient’ - Gray Scott, Futurist

A category-shattering work that falls somewhere in between meditation and necromantic summoning, Stimmung is perhaps Stockhausen’s most iconic work. Performed in the surroundings of Barts Pathology Museum, replete with creatures suspended in that uncanny formaldehyde-drenched space between life and death, our site-specific production will take you on a journey into the psyche through light and scent.

Doors from 6.30pm. The performance will be preceded by a discussion between Paul Edlin, director of music at Queen Mary University London and Benedict Collins Rice, director of The Facade Ensemble.
