Stimmung is Karlheinz Stockhausen's most influential work and an iconic piece of experimental music. It was the first Western composition to be based entirely on the production of vocal harmonics. It is composed for six solo singers, and takes inspiration from the Aztec ruins Stockhausen saw in Mexico, with 'magical words' and erotic poetry of Stockhausen's own composition declaimed over the texure.

This hypnotic piece is set against the backdrop of the Barts Pathology Museum, a space focussed entirely on the mechanisms of the human body, and will be complemented by lighting and scent.

There will be a pre-performance discussion between Paul Edlin, director of music for QMUL, and Benedict Collins-Rice, director of The Facade Ensemble.
