Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

Stockhausen interview of 1973; Towards a Cosmic Music; Texts by Karlheinz Stockhausen

Music should above all be a means of maintaining the soul's link with the beyond  ...

Nowadays there is something new, music therapy, which is becoming more and more popular ... We have no idea about what music therapy can do. Only now are we slowly starting to rediscover that ... Rather strangely, therapists only start helping people with music when they are already afflicted.

My music is often used for therapy. Unfortunately that only happens when people are hospitalised and already completely unbalanced. Only very few people know that every single one of us basically needs music as a means of self-healing.
