EM4: Tod Dockstader

A Portrait

Despite his ground-breaking audio tape compositions from the early 1960s, including Quartermass and Water Music, Tod Dockstader (1932–2015) is a lesser-known protagonist of electroacoustic music. Apart from smaller studies, in the late 1990s he took up digital compositions, some of which were only discovered and released after his death. In this concert, the Electronic Music Studio at Technische Universität Berlin provides an overview of his extraordinary work and his creative periods, diffusing the stereo compositions on a spread out loudspeaker system.
After the concert we will show a unique short excerpt made exclusively
for this concert by the director Alvin Case. The content is based on
the upcoming feature length documentary 'Dockstader'.
