Episode #3393

Light Works

For this New Sounds, hear some electronic music  by two German composers, both dealing with Light.  Karlheinz Stockhausen's Licht (Light) is a cycle of 7 "operas" - one for each day of the week.  Freitag (Friday) begins with an hour long electronic prelude and concludes with an hour long electronic postlude.  We'll hear excerpts from both the Friday Greeting and the Friday Farewell. 


Pantha du Prince is the stage name of Hendrik Weber, whose album "Elements of Light" fuses house, techno, and shoegazey indie with a large carillon of bells.  The excerpt we'll hear looks at light as a wave, and as a particle.

@John from Sandwich,
Exactly the same thing happened to me. We are investigating. In the meantime, I'm refreshing the audio-archive that you were listening to.

The show podcast was only 7'55". I would enjoy hearing the full broadcast.
