Brief synopsis in English:
is a motion design video inspired by the work of the legendary composer and
architect, Iannis Xenakis. The video includes a series of audio-reactive
video sound sculptures as manifestations of sound. These are sculpted by the
amplitude, frequency or the morphology of the soundtrack itself. The whole
video is intended to be some kind of virtual score representation that
develops continuously, reacting to music.

University Cyprus in collaboration with the Pharos Arts Foundation.
is one of the most celebrated composers and iconic figures of the twentieth
century. He was one of the most influential thinkers of the past century not
only in the field of music but also in various scientific pursuits. His
music and philosophy have inspired a whole generation of composers and
performers, and this conference, which coincides with the ten-year
anniversary of his death, aims to shed light on lesser-known aspects of his
life and work.
Xenakis is an
explorer of the furthest frontiers of music, architecture and thought. His
dazzling mathematical constructions changed the face of music for all time
and his organic structures lent poetry to post-war architecture. Shimmering
strings, thundering percussion, heartfelt voices transport us to the
Xenakian imagery of planetary motions, galaxies and the grandeur of the
natural world. His daring imagination empowered audiences and musicians with
a passion born out of a tumultuous and traumatic life.
