Stockhausen Concerts Database report

Williams, Sean (2016). Stockhausen Concerts Database report. In: Performance Studies Network conference 2016, 14-17 Jul 2016, Bath Spa University.



The Stockhausen archive has a large collection of concert programmes in which Stockhausen's music has been performed from 1952 to the present day. This resource is extremely rich but its potential is untapped unless meaningful relations can be made between items. My initial intention was to find out about how sound engineers and technicians were credited in performances, but this eventually led to the creation of a fully searchable database of all Stockhausen concert details from 1952-1972. The Drupal framework allows easy creation of new search criteria, and this maximizes the utility of having all the information in a database. It is possible to search by work, concert series, performer, city, gender of performers, and several other criteria, all of which can be combined. This opens up possibilities for revealing social, cultural, economic and other perspectives way beyond what originally motivated this research.
