Generative processes in Stockhausen's Lichter - Wasser

Bianchi, Oscar

An overview on a highly intertwined generative system through Stockhausen's late piece Lichter - Wasser (1998-1999). Lichter - Wasser is a work that constantly attempts to conjugate the contemplation and the paroxism of an ur-element, the so called super formula, with the long sought utopia of the infinite progress of perception faculties (a journey formally began in 1955 with Stockhausen's composition Gruppen, for three orchestral groups).
