Electronic and concrete music (1966-7), created at the height of the Cold War.

Stockhausen transforms, combines and resynthesizes 40 national anthems to create a 4-channel tape piece using massed ensembles, electronics, screaming feedback, reducing everything down to the sound of a single human breath.


The event will be preceded by free live music in the Gulbenkian café featuring creative music styles from the Centre for Music and Audio Technology from 5pm.

Karlheinz Stockhausen: Hymnen takes place in Eliot Hall on the Canterbury University campus.

Part of Eutopia Festival at Gulbenkian and The European Poetry Festival
