Resume of the piece:
Xynaxis (Xenakis remix project)
One of Xenakis’s primary “polytope” multimedia pieces “Persepolis” was chosen for re-interpretation with customized remixes. The composer was aware about its soon to be release by Asphodel Records in 2001 when he passed away. The interlacing of the remix pieces by various composers draws largely from the original work, emphasizing its noisy sonorities and overlapping waves of intensity. Naut Humon who curated the customized reworkings applied to those remix sources other outside electronics from Frankenstein Symphony, for this dedication tribute remix to the future memory of Iannis Xenakis.
