Inspired by two early works of Karlheinz Stockhausen, the authors visualize tonal and rhythmic sonic principles utilized by the composer in the pieces Elektronische Musik Studie II and Kontakte. Recognizing frequency as an objective attribute of sonic structure, our studies were inspired by notions of perceptual rhythm and pitch manipulation present in Kontakte and generative material aspects of additive synthesis explored in Elektronische Musik Studie II. Approaching this topic with backgrounds in architecture, the authors’ interests lie largely in visualizing the nested spatial and phenomenal potentials of the works.More information
