Stockhausen Died

Sad news today: Karlheinz Stockhausen is dead. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml;jsessionid=T4RWBOA5SZZVTQFIQMFCFFWAVCBQYIV0?xml=/news/2007/12/08/db0801.xml

I have enjoyed his music since I was first introduced to it in 1981 - "Set Sail for the Sun" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aus_den_Sieben_Tagen has been one of my desert island discs since I heard it back then.
