The work examined will be Solo of Karlheinz Stockhausen. We will analyse:
The electronic processing is conceived in the original version with analogic instruments and has undergone several transformations.
In the '90s, the first digital versions were realised and recently there have been new applications for the performance.
In some recent projects we have a proposal to turn the piece into a soundscape, setting it especially outdoors. The goal of our research is therefore an analysis of Solo to define its characteristics to highlight the evolution of the piece to a new function of soundscape made possible with the new technologies. At the same time we try to show the conception of the piece and the transformation of it through technological evolution. Many conclusions were reached through a `workshop' aimed at re-composing the piece for performance.
