Come for a night of love, Avant-Garde and harmony. Voices of Silicon Valley, in partnership with the San Francisco Conservatory of Music's Technology and Applied Composition Program, is presenting composer Stockhausen's work Stimmung. This avant-garde soundscape piece combines harmonic overtones sung in modular sequence with erotic poetry recited in German to invoke inevitable sensations deep down in us. It's wicked, strange and intimate all at the same time. It's paranoia and magic. It's love in sounds and shapes.
This is only the 4th time ever for Stimmung to be performed in San Francisco since 1974, the original place of Summer of Love. As the timing of its composition approximates San Franciscos Summer of Love, Stimmung aligns itself with its ideals of universal love, religious unity, and meditation. It is accomplished through the deeply meditative nature of the work as well as the use of a variety of Magic Names that come from many different world religion traditions.
The first half of the program will feature "Our Time" (by VOSV director Cyril Deaconoff) - "MLK" by U2 - "Sympathy," a piece for choir and audience with cell phones - Pentatonix arrangements
