Hymnen in four channels is one of the largest electronic paintings ever imagined.
Evoking with its pop-art scale and surrounded by Gérard Fromanger's paintings, Hymnen is created from found objects, these collective expressions electronically transformed, shoot up vertically from the ground and from the walls. Through this romantic gesture made in 1967, Stockhausen sought to transport the listener to the kingdom of Pluramon, that of unity in multiplicity.
