Helena Thomson, Hannah Ely, Rebekah Jones, Josh Cooter, Patrick Allies, Ben McKee 

The young British vocal group Siglo de Oro perform Stockhausen’s 1968 iconic work Stimmung for six voices and microphones. Grab a cushion or a seat and immerse yourself in seventy minutes of Stockhausen’s sound world. Performed ’in the round’ Stimmung employs ancient vocal harmonic techniques and overtones with Stockhausen’s own intimate poetry, to create a provocative and hypnotic piece of sound theatre.
