Last week Karlheinz Stockhausen died in Kurten, Germany. He’s one of those guys you should know the name of if you appreciate the origins of modern audio manipulation and electronic music. Known as an experimental orchestral composer, Stockhausen served to influence a slew of forward-thinking musicians through the 60s-90s including The Beatles, Aphex Twin, Bjork and Sonic Youth, in naming only a few.
