9780918728227: Arts-Sciences: Alloys (Aesthetics in Music Series; No. 2)

In this fascinating essay Iannis Xenakis succeeds in unraveling the intricate web between the arts and sciences, thereby demonstrating their interdependency as in the components of an alloy. A complete list of works and bibliography are included. In this translation Xenakis explains not only his musical and theoretical writings - but also the role of mathematics as a philosophical catalyst in both his musical and architectural works. He discusses in detail his unique use of computers as a graphic tool in the composition of some of his scores. Unexpected aspects of his character are gracefully revealed in these highly readable exposés.

Xenakis is responding to a panel of noted French masters from the various disciplines in w which he has worked and cleverly manages to answer specific questions in one field while simultaneously addressing perhaps less-initiated exponents from other, seemingly unrelated areas. He succeeds in unraveling the intricate web between the arts and sciences, thereby demonstrating their inter-dependency as in the components of alloys.
