IANNIS XENAKIS (1922 - 2001)

La Légende d'Eer (1977 - 78)

electro acoustic work for 7-channel tape

A powerful "multi-media" piece created for the opening of the Centre Georges-Pompidou in Paris. La Légende d'Eer played for three months and was seen by thousands. Xenakis composed the electro acoustic tape for playback in "Le Diatope", a curvaceous architectural construction of his own design with a visual component including 1680 lights, 4 lasers and 400 mirrors.

Together the music and visuals suggest an initial departure, a journey, and a final return - the experience brilliantly captured in Bruno Rastoin's images.

This spectacle of light and sound - fragments of instrumental sounds, bodies of sounds, cataclysmic noises, undulating electronic flashes, pure laser lights - create a rich and unsettling environment, an unforgettable journey and experience.
