On April 22, 1991, when he was a visiting scholar at the Getty Center for the Arts and the Humanities in Santa Monica, Stephan von Huene delivered a lecture on the origins of his sound sculptures. Slides of his works were displayed, for which Stephan von Huene developed an unconventional type of lecture notes: on sheets of paper, one for each sound sculpture, he notated everything – to some extent graphically, to some extent using keywords, both proliferating across the entire page – of importance to the genesis of the respective work. Stephan von Huene frequently used such Mindmaps, which allowed him to “make ideas visible” (S. v. H.); in the Getty Talk, they accompanied an entire lecture, and later became an important source of information about the sound sculptures.
