Sound/Light/Structure: Polytope

As an architect as well as a composer, Xenakis was highly attuned to the relationship between space and sound. In this podcast we explore Xenakis's "polytopes" - site-specific compositions of sound and light - as well as his use of spatialized distribution of sound. Featuring contributions from Paul D. Miller, aka DJ Spooky, Georgia Spiropoulos, Allen S. Weiss, Steven Schick, and Gilles Vonsattel.
