The Symposium will facilitate a forum for discussions related to the rich and complex creative legacy of Iannis Xenakis, one of the most important composers of the second half of the twentieth century.

We invite scholars, performers and research students to share their research findings and artistic insight with talks, lecture-recitals and performances, addressing a broad range of subjects centering on Xenakis’ Compositional Methods, Philosophy, Aesthetics and Performance. Collaborative presentations with performances are welcome.

Of particular relevance to the Symposium are the questions related to Xenakis’ performance practice.

The subjects of discussion may include, but are not limited to: interdisciplinary approaches, instrumental techniques, interpretation, notation, physicality of performing, ‘theatricality’, analysis of recordings and issues related to the recording process, memorising Xenakis’ scores.
