I was watching "The Four Criteria for Electronic Music" last night and thiis morning I wake up to find that Stockhausen is no longer among the humans. Here are some clips
"In friendship and gratitude for everything that he has given to us personally and to humanity through his love and his music, we bid farewell to Karlheinz Stockhausen, who lived to bring celestial music to humans, and human music to the celestial beings, so that man may listen to God and God may hear His children" "On December 5, he ascended with joy through heaven's door in order to continue to compose in paradise with cosmic pulses in eternal harmony."Released by the clarinettist Suzanne Stephens and flautist Kathinka Pasveer, two "companions" who had been associated with him for than 30 years and performed many of his works.

This is one of my favorites...

I think what we need now is a retrospective concert that performs all of his works in order.
