In conjunction with the exhibition Mary Bauermeister: Live in Peace or Leave the Galaxy, Michael Rosenfeld Gallery is pleased to present Simon Stockhausen: A Workshop Concert, A Tribute to his mother Mary Bauermeister, which will be held on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at 7:15PM at The Kitchen. The interactive performance will be preceded by a reception at the gallery from 6:00-7:00PM. Stockhausen is a noted composer, musician and sound designer with an interest in exploring uncharted sonic territory, combining acoustic instruments and field recordings with electronic sounds and deriving sound and music from art works and images in general. Since 2016, Stockhausen has collaborated with Bauermeister, fusing his interests in music and art together.
Simon Stockhausen (b.1967) commenced his musical education (piano, saxophone, drums, synthesiser, composition) at the age of five, and began performing in his father Karlheinz Stockhausen’s works at the age of 12. After his final exams in 1986, he started touring the world with the Stockhausen ensemble and also co-produced electronic music for two operas by his father. Simon’s collaboration with his brother Markus Stockhausen over the last 20 years in the field of jazz and improvised music has generated numerous CD releases —on record labels such as ECM, EMI, and LARGO— as well as soundtracks for film and theatre productions.
Since the early 1990s, Simon has composed music for various German chamber ensembles and in 2012 he staged his first large-scale orchestral work Doktrin der Ruhe, commissioned by the Hamburger Symphoniker orchestra. Since 1998 he has written and arranged music for many German theatres, and in 2003 began composing film-scores for documentary films and short movies including Disengagement (2007) and Trip to Asia (2008).
In 2009 Simon created patchpool.net, where he publishes commercial sound libraries for software synthesisers, effect plug-ins and samplers as well as sound files for post production and sound design. Since reuniting with his mother in 2016, Simon has written several compositions for her exhibition openings and has also produced video animations of her artwork.
