Film by Bruno Rastoin (2004)
Played with 7-channel tape mixed live by Gerard Pape.
A very rare opportunity to see and hear this masterpiece of electronic music. An apocalyptical "multi-media" piece for the opening of the Centre Georges-Pompidou in Paris, LA LÉGENDE D'EER played for three months and was seen by thousands. Xenakis performed the electroacoustic 7-channel tape in a curvaceous architectural construction of his own design with a visual component including 1,680 lights, 4 lasers and 400 mirrors. The event was captured in over 350 slides by Rastoin ? edited into a film that traces the music. This spectacle of light and sound creates a rich and unsettling environment, an unforgettable journey. Xenakis' associate Gerard Pape will mix the surround-sound experience live from the original master tapes.
