Iannis Xenakis: Charisma X

Charisma X follows the life of Iannis Xenakis from childhood through his final composition, Omega. Musicologist Makis Solomos guides us through Xenakis' key periods and accomplishments - interspersed with musical performances and comments from those who knew or worked with Xenakis.

It explores the relationship between his music and architecture, including working for Le Corbusier. His architectural achievements of the Philips Pavilion at Expo 58, the convent of La Tourette, his home in Corsica, and the houses he designed for his daughter Makhi and composer Mache are shown.

The film also includes an interview with eyewitness to Xenakis devastating injury which he suffered as a resistance fighter in Athens (1945) that affected his life and work.
