Stimmung by Stockhausen: Speak while inhaling you say?

December 16, 2016 - 8:56am -- Jane Berry

It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly three months since we met for our first rehearsal of Stockhausen’s Stimmung back in September; I was terrified walking into that rehearsal!!! I had worked so hard and yet felt so utterly unprepared. To begin with, I had absolutely no idea how to go about performing a work that required me to produce overtone melodies that I wasn’t even sure if I was capable of hearing yet. Producing these overtones also appeared to rely directly on ones ability to work their way around Stockhausen’s “vowel square,” the intricacies of which often left me feeling paralyzed, both mentally and physically.
