Karlheinz Stockhausen – Helikopter-Streichquartett, for string quartet and 4 helicopters

If you liked the metronome symphony then you’ll love this charming composition from Karlheinz Stockhausen.

Here’s a tip if you ever happen to go to a Stockhausen gig. You may find yourself in a situation where you want to sit beside your mates but there aren’t enough seats together. Solution: try to persuade a fellow Stockhausen fan in a seat with an inferor view to swap. They will be more than happy to get a better line of sight to the stage. Don’t worry you haven’t sacrificed your prime spot in vain! In fact the view of the stage is totally irrelevant as the performance will take place in complete and total darkness. Then you and your pals can trance out to Stockhausen’s abstract octophonic genius while your brains melt.
