*2022 Stock.* Paare Vom Freitag (Couples of Friday) with soprano, bass, electronic instruments (signal processing and samples) (1992/99). The Stockhausen Edition no. 48 contains 99 tracks of the isolated electro-acoustic/concrete vocal duets from the opera Freitag aus Licht (Friday from Light). In the opera these brief duets are sequenced and layered into 12 "Sound Scenes" spread throughout the opera, but on this disc they are presented as isolated events. These short vocal duets featuring the voices of Stockhausen and Kathinka Pasveer (who normally plays flutes) are electronically-modulated with various musique concrete field recordings (through vocoder, harmonizer and other signal processing devices overseen by Simon Stockhausen). Additionally, for each of these micro-duets, a unique background chord (synth patch) is usually also present. - Stockhausenspace.blogspot.com
