The essays and catalogue raisonné in this monograph present Stephan von Huene's oeuvre in its multi-mediality and infinite diversity of sources and manifestations. Two early cycles of drawings, which have only recently been found in the U.S. and in Germany, are published here for the first time, as well as material collage paintings and surreal-looking wood and leather sculptures which may be understood as preludes to the first sound sculptures Stephan von Huene conceived and built later. Studies of acoustics, organ-building and mechanical pianos preceded these works. They may be minimalistically severe, such as the large, transparent Drum/Trommel, or display a touching and frightening realism like the four-part group of half figures entitled Tischtänzer (Table Dancers), or Der Halbleiter von Chemnitz (The Semi-conductor of Chemnitz), a work commissioned by the Technical University of Chemnitz. Von Huene saw his computer-controlled sculptures, which produce their own world of sounds, noises and movements, as a step from the fictional to the concrete.
