SB :: Karlheinz's Songs of Praise

february 12, 2008
For a special tribute edition of Aligre FM's "Songs of Praise" I dug up the original audio cassette recording of an interview we did with Karlheinz Stockhausen more than twenty five years ago, in november 1982, at the time he was composing Samstag aus Licht and with family and friends/collaborators for a period of thirty five days 'occupied' the Royal Conservatory in The Hague (the Netherlands).

dingen in Frankrijk (1)

I started writing this episode about the All Hallows Holidays that I spent with the kids in Amsterdam using a somewhat peculiar style in order to reflect the myriad of ANDY WARHOL related events that are happening all over town there these days. But then all the while other things kept creeping in ... like the festival R_de_Choc, or WIEL's birthday, bumping into MICHEL DONEDA when I was in Brooklyn, meeting the BROCANTE SONORE in Brussels and seeing them thrice in concert in and around Paris ... so there's loads to read (and hear and watch!) but no ANDY yet ...
Next time soon, I promise ... Meanwhile if you are in PARIS, do not forget
to COME TOMORROW, friday nov. 9th, to see and hear DIKTAT perform at
That is at 45, rue du faubourg du Temple (fond de la cour) in Paris X.
Doors open at 20h30 ... Be happy!
