As well as being invited to give a TEDTalk Lecture/Performance last week in Vancouber, I was also asked to help curate their book store for the event. Below are my book selections along with a link & a little info about each choice. Enjoy !
Fleeing from World War II torn Greece to become an illegal immigrant in Paris. Xanakis got a job as an engineer & architect. From there his interest in music sprung and he applied the same techniques in regards to architecture to his music compositions. With breakthrough scores shattering any pre conceived notion about music and it’s links to math.
This book is a prime collection of theories & techniques from one of the greatest avant-garde composers to have ever been.
