Kontakte by Karlheinz Stockhausen in Four Channels
Analysis Notes, October–November 2008, April 2009
Pairs of pairs of channels; apparent motion (180 ms delay).
- channels are paired–LF / RB, RF / LB
- RF / LB pair in phase
- LF delayed 180ms for RB
- canonic tracks–RB 180ms > RF / LB 180ms > LF
- multi-layered drone / resonances (continuous)
- foreground “flickers”, often at 180 ms distance between channels
- drone transforms–how many layers are heard?
