Renaissance dress for the
Composer
Karlheinz Stockhausen
 
 

Period: 15th century, Italy

We crafted this Renaissance dress for an opus premiere on 11. July 2007 by Karlheinz Stockhausen. The robe was part of the KLANG [sound] cycle that divides the day into 24 sounds and colors. It represented the fifth hour and we were asked to precisely use the color HKS 50 K Blue.


For the creation we used specifically dyed silk velvet combined with delicate silk organza. The antique-golden metal frame overlaying the bodice and upper sleeves contrasts the blue color even more. These latticed overlays were very famous during the Renaissance, which is clearly recognizable for example by the tomb effigy of Beatrice d'Este from 1497.


The sleeves are removable and thus changeable; they can be worn separately or can be removed entirely. The suit is closed with lateral lacings, which were quite common during the Renaissance.
