NATIONALITY
Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928): Karlheinz Stockhausen is German.

IN GENERAL
Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928): Stockhausen is one of the biggest innovators and pioneers of modern music in Europe, who effectively used every technological means in order to promote the modern music to new directions, directions more effective and more "genuinely" artistic in relation to our epoch. As all of the composers that acted after the second world war in avant-garde music, Stockhausen began his career being influenced by the idiomorphic twelve-tome idiom of Webern, to advance rather fast to total serialism and aleatorism by making use of all available technological medium.

STYLE
Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928): Stockhausen was the first to be directed towards the idiom that considers music as a transformation of densities, timbres and textures that can be controlled by statistical means, and that this process by itself can give birth to new, original, "open" or accidental forms. Stockhausen's work is based on a series of proposals about the material of sound and how we can act upon it. Stockhausen used too much various electronic means - Stockhausen can easily be considered as the leader of movement of "Electronic Music" because of the studio he founded at Cologne (Germany). After the initial use of generalized serialism, Stockhausen turned - himself, too - to the Music of Accidental (aleatorism), as well as to the use of performance practices that mostly reminds us of American composers (special placement of performers at the concert space etc.). Generally, we can say that Stockhausen used every technological development in the service of avant-garde music and that he himself tried to function as both concentration point and dissemination centre of new ideas in modern music.
