Here I publish my 5-Track Sonogram Analyis of Gesang der Jünglinge im Feuerofen by Karlheinz Stockhausen. You can use it privately for free. If you use it in a professional environment, please cite my authorship.
It is an analytic work made up of sonograms for each of the five tracks that were originally meant to be performed as such. My analysis can be read like a score – the symbols in the score offer the possibility to connect back to the sketch materials and dive deeper into each sound in the music.
The extensive published sketch materials for this seminal work in the history of modern music – having an unearthy beauty to it in my view – are available from the Stockhausen Verlag:
