AUS DEN SIEBEN TAGEN Karlheinz Stockhausen May 1968

May 1968 was a significant date for many reasons but for Stockhausen it was a personal crisis.
He went on a hunger strike on the 6th of May after realising his wife had left him.
On the second day he resolved to die by his own hand. Then something magical happened he
discovered a book about Sri Aurobindo, described by Michael Kurtz “Coming at a crisis point,
it [the book with the texts on Sri Aurobindo] was the impulse for a catharsis that immediately generated new music”.


The fifteen constituent pieces are:

1. Richtige Dauern (Right Durations), for ca. 4 players
2. Unbegrenzt (Unlimited), for ensemble
3. Verbindung (Connection), for ensemble
4.Treffpunkt (Meeting Point), for ensemble
5. Nachtmusik (Night Music), for ensemble
6. Abwärts (Downward), for ensemble
7. Aufwärts (Upward), for ensemble
8. Oben und Unten (Above and Below), theater piece, for a man, a woman, a child, and 4 instrumentalists
9. Intensität (Intensity), for ensemble
10.Setz die Segel zur Sonne (Set Sail for the Sun), for ensemble
11.Kommunion (Communion), for ensemble
12.Litanei (Litany), for speaker or choir
13.Es (It), for ensemble

RICHTIGE DAUERN
("Right Durations")


play a sound
play it for so long
until you feel
that you should stop

again play a sound
play it for so long
until you feel
that you should stop

and so on

stop
when you feel
that you should stop

but whether you play or stop
keep listening to the others

At best play
when people are listening

do not rehearse
