Text reads Karlheinz Stockhausen
This is not a joke. Karlheinz Stockhausen dreamt of it and he did it. He wrote a score for a string quartet whose musicians (in this instance the Arditti Quartet) would each play in a helicopter, while their music would be mixed on the ground by Stockhausen and broadcasted in the concert hall. The helicopter rotors are naturally present.
Frank Scheffer enables us to take part in the preparation of this "borderline" experiment: a huge amount of work rehearsing with the participation of the Dutch Navy, who supplied the helicopters and the pilots. Thanks to a camera fixed on the fifth helicopter, we fly in the sky with the "musicians" helicopters over Amsterdam. Magical.
A "concert" that really isn't like any other in that after landing, when the members of the Arditti Quartet enter the concert hall to receive the audience's applause, they haven't even heard what they played.
