In November 1969, Lebanon's Jeita Grotto was host to a historic sound event.Feted as one of the most important composers of the 20th and early-21st centuries, Stockhausen's several interests included spatialization, how music travels in space.Stockhausen's triste with Jeita was the subject of "Time Tuning," Raed Yassin's lecture performance in Sharjah earlier this week. The Lebanese visual and sound artist introduced the composer's work and shared some fascinating footage shot during the 1969 event. That distinction goes to "Lunar Reflection Transmission Technique," another new SAF commission, a 45-minute collaboration of video artist Taro Shinoda and percussionist Uriel Barthelemi.Held on the evening of March 11 in a natural depression in Sharjah's Mleiha desert, "Lunar Reflection Transmission Technique" saw Shinoda's black-and-white footage of the moon's nightly passages over various urban centers projected on a 9 x 12-meter screen.
