Abstract:

The analysis of the history of electronic music since its birth in 1953 reveals the emergence of a new music (with a new vocabulary, new grammar, etc.) but especially the appearance of new sounds. The German composer, Karlheinz Stockhausen reflects on his experiences of electronic music, from his first experience in Paris’ musique concrète studio to his recent electronic works. He focuses his analysis on serialism in electronic music offering numerous examples from works by Varèse, Pousseur, Boulez, Cage, Eimert, Ligeti, Berio, Ussachewsky, Luening, and himself.
