5.0 out of 5 stars A truly 'New Age' work April 5, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is an astounding work by one of the true masters of the post-WWII avant-garde. Stockhausen often worked with massive (and complex) forces, but here, all we find are six unadorned voices, gradually chanting their way through a litany of sacred names, erotic verse, meditative intonations, all utilizing only the harmonics of a single root B-flat tone that can be produced by the human voice. There are many people that think that washing synths, twiddly melodies, and overdubbed whales makes for 'New Age'...but "Stimmung" really sounds like some mysterious, just-beyond-comprehension ceremony from some time not yet reached. Singcircle's performance here is perhaps the best I've heard, also, with very exacting (and rigorous) performance capabilities in evidence. And having some familiarity myself with how overtone singing works, I can say that the effort which the ensemble makes here is truly leviathan, monumental, and all the more astounding for its accomplishment!

5.0 out of 5 stars experimentation on tonal potentials of the human voice October 24, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I feel many listeners would agree that Stimmung is far more accessible to the average listener than Stochausen's other works.Some listeners,however, who valued Stockhausen's lack of repitition,may be disappointed.I for one feel it is more akin to the more minimal works of Glass/Reich in that its structure poses more of a developmental process than his works inclined towards 'chance'-still this is not for your average listener and might appear very strange indeed.More problematic than the still non-repetitive structure is the strict adherence to solo-instrumentation-namely, the human voice.This does not mean to say that this is for fans of choral music-the use of the voice veers more toward chanting than singing.-Still 5 stars from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Karlheinz Stockhausen: Ave Atque Vale December 8, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Karlheinz Stockhausen, one of the more experimental geniuses of contemporary music has died, and though he was highly regarded in his lifetime for his 'invention' of electronic music and pushing the barriers of aural experimentation to limits beyond the imagination of most other composers, his legacy is yet to be fully appreciated.

For the novice whose musical experience has not encountered Stockhausen, this DC of the STIMMUNG as performed by the Singcircle is likely as simple a beginning as any. Rather than being composed for his unique combination of 'instruments', this fascinating work was composed for the human voice in response to ancient concepts and images and ideas - part of the mystical mind of the master composer. This is music for the soul and the imagination and does not demand anything more from the listener than release of physical constraints to open the mind to the planes of experience unknown to many of us until Karlheinz Stockhausen opened the windows. A beautiful recording and an appropriate requiem for a true genius. Grady Harp, December 07

It was almost inevitable that Stockhausen became transformed by the spirits and gods of the world. He was an early imaginative avaricious creator of the post-war generation claiming his territory early with humungus works and an almost corporate-like agenda for writing music. All this music are avant-garde classics now, the "Gruppen" for three orchestras, the various "klavierstuck" piano pieces,"Hymnen",electronic music all have broken innovative ground and music has not been the same since. If you ever become bitten by the stockhausen-bug it is for life unlike say the Beatles. Stockhausen's gaze over humanity included not only boughts with complexity,where he had( like a scientist with a microscope) controlled and projected every parameter of music under his tutilege,but he was an overt opportunist,seeing himself inside every cultural faze and product around. "Stimmung" or "Voicings" or "Tunings" was his ode to the anti-war movement in the late Sixties,at least to the spirits that were around then and is an intense East-West dialogue. It's a masterpiece if we can still call it that today. The six vocalists here sit in a hippy-like circle intoning the names of gods from various cultures,Vishnu, and those from the lost Indian Tribes of North and South America. The vocalists use their heads as resonators taking full advantage of the resultant overtone structures of the group. You need to devote a year of your life to learning it, so double Bravo! to Singcircle if you are a performer. The effect is spellbinding, and if you ever listened to world music, this is for you, it is a bit long if this is your first visit to Stockhausen's theme-parks But this is a ritual, a sacrifice, so let yourself go,you may not come back the same, and visit a spirit god, hopefully not Stockhausen,but his music.

5.0 out of 5 stars dependable manipulation of voice May 17, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Stockhausen's career was one of monumental & protean experimentation. Who might have expected that the man who composed music as chaotic as Kontakte would also compose music with notes as solidly organised as Stimmung? My friend who is a fellow fan of Stockhausen thinks of Stimmung as "his silly piece." It's so accessible that it's very fun too -- unusual for him. Stimmung was inspired by time Stockhausen spent in Mexico where he would sit on a rock for hours staring at ruins, noticing how they were slightly out pf phase.... He also experienced being different indigenous peoples or a Spaniard & relived their religious ceremonies, which could be quite cruel, but (as he wrote) "religious cruelty isn't in Stimmung, only sounds."
