KLANG: London Contemporary Orchestra

Marking the 85th birthday of Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928-2007), the London Contemporary Orchestra showcase a number of works from his epic KLANG – Die 24 Stunden des Tages (‘Sound – The 24 Hours of the Day’), a cycle of compositions each representing one hour of the day.

The evening will be prefaced with a performance on Primrose Hill at sunset of Claude Vivier’s Zipangu, referencing the island that Kubla Khan sought to conquer, and which to the composer represented “the symbol of immeasurable wealth, lying just out of reach”. A sound-walk from Primrose Hill to the Roundhouse will be accompanied by an electro-acoustic score from Edmund Finnis.
