... ( GERMAN ) ➤ MOMENT , STIMMUNG , TIME We say of a musical work that it corresponds to a form made up of Momente , according to the German expression in use since the nineteenth century, whenever the sequence is itself conceived as an accumulation of Momente . This becomes, then, the standard term for a musical unit of time. Stockhausen gave a complex compositional meaning to the term, which has had a determining influence on contemporary music and musical terminology. For the Germans, particularly Schubert, musical Momente referred to those parts...

The listener should concentrate on the present, the ‘moment’. Stockhausen's major work in this ‘open’ form is Momente ( 1962–4 ) for soprano, four choral groups, and 13 instrumentalists. Alison...

...Schmerz sein Recht , eleven poems by F. Hebbel , arranged in a cycle in the final collection of his poems in 1857 . The work includes poems from the cycle Lebens-Momente , arranged in 1836 and published separately in the earlier collections of 1842 and 1848 . The brief ‘Schlußgedicht’ was written later to balance the temper of the cycle, which commemorates Hebbel's experience of isolation, despair, and longing for escape, which he began to express in poetry before he turned to drama. The tenth poem contains the line ‘Alles Leben ist Raub’, which...

...with its director, Herbert Eimert , he used three signal generators to produce a form of music. In Gesang der Jünglinge ( 1956 ), the human voice is combined with electronic sound. In the 1960s he developed means of electronic transformation, as in Kontakte ( 1960 ) and Momente ( 1962 ). In Stimmung ( 1968 ) and Mantra ( 1970 ) much is left to the intuition of the performer or the player. At this time his music was also influenced by eastern mysticism. Stockhausen invented a method of music notation for his works, using graphs and geometrical...

...was developed by Stockhausen into what he called ‘group composition’, a group being a slice of musical time (the larger groups are called ‘moments’). How various groups are inter‐related decides the formal design of a work. The culmination of this period came in 1961–4 with Momente . The next step was a new attitude to musical mobility, whereby the order of self‐contained groups could be varied so that musical continuity could be altered. The 11th ( 1956 ) of his series of pf works Klavierstücke is in mobile form, the groups being playable in any order...

...the heard quality of sound, rather than its symbolic representation, became the prime consideration. Stockhausen had always been an acute judge of acoustic effectiveness, but now the composition and relation of timbres became increasingly important. This is the case in Momente for soprano, chorus, and instruments ( 1961–72 ) and in various works in which Stockhausen applied electronic transformation to musical performance: Mixtur for modulated orchestra ( 1964 ), Mikrophonie I for tam-tam and microphones ( 1964 ), and Mikrophonie II for...

The Hammond organ saw a huge surge in popularity in rock, R&B, and soul music. Groups such as Booker T. and the MGs, Steppenwolf...

Hand-clapping is the only sound source used in Yasunao Tone’s Clapping Music (1963) and in Steve Reich’s Clapping Music (1972) for two performers, and is often used by singers and audiences in light music—so much so that some electronic percussion devices include a...
