This is worth reading and it ties into recent discussions on this list.
Of course he will always be remembered as an avant garde composer,
but much of Stockhausens greatness is missed by artists who saw him as
a pseudo-scientist and scientists who dismissed him as an artist.
He was both at different times. A lack of rigor and precise voclabulary
hides his contribution to psychoacoustics, he basically provided
experimental support to Gabors theories, yet he is not mentioned once
in critcal textbooks like McAdams and Bigand.
