Kontakte by Karlheinz Stockhausen in Four Channels
Analysis Notes, October–November 2008, April 2009
Axis tone duet of metal (glass) and wood (LF / RB).
- varying degrees of independence / codependence
- both sound families used on both channels
- slow introduction of complementary (sustained) sounds
- in silences, hints of upcoming dominant materials
- increased density of tone dialog / exchange, differentiation less explicit
