ZODIAC Music Boxes

12 melodies of the star signs

In 1974, Stockhausen composed the 12 melodies of the star signs for music boxes
and produced them in collaboration with technicians at the Reuge music box factory
in Ste. Croix, Switzerland.
    In 1989 the Reuge family sold the company, and the production of these music
boxes was discontinued.

After extended negotiations on the part of Suzanne Stephens, and on the occasion of
the composer's 70th birthday, an agreement was reached for the manufacture of a
one-time limited edition. These music boxes were checked by Suzanne Stephens
and Antonio Pérez Abellán on location at the factory and adjusted there before they
were shipped to Kürten.

This 70th Birthday Edition is limited to 40 musicc boxes for each star sign, numbered
1 to 40. They may be ordered directly from the Stockhausen-Verlag.

The melodies are encased in light-coloured natural wood boxes measuring
17.7 x 12.1 cm. The notes of the ZODIAC melody - hand-written and signed by
the composer - are silk-screened onto the lid of each music box.
