IANNIS XENAKIS (1922-2001): Edition, Vol. 9: Electronic Works, Vol. 2 - Hibiki Hana Ma, Polytope de Cluny.
Catalogue Number: 01K103
Description: These works from 1970 and 1974 were designed for particular spaces, speaker arrays and, for the Cluny, lasers and other light-show elements. So, having the sound part only (from the original analogue tapes in the case of Cluny and digital copies of no longer surviving originals in the Japanese installation) is certainly a limitation but since these experiences were one-offs impossible to repeat at this temporal distance, we can only enjoy what we have here. All materials digitally remastered by the composer (and former director of Xenakis' studio) Gerard Pape.
