One of Europe's great innovators

Kings Place, London

Architectural model of Le Corbusier’s experimental music room for Xenakis-Véret project for the Cité de la musique de La Villette, Paris

Delve inside the exhilarating sonic inventions of Iannis Xenakis in an interactive evening of film, talks and music with the London Sinfonietta. Xenakis’ music is the product of both his fascinating life and his parallel obsessions with mathematics, composition and architecture. From fleeing Greece after fighting in the Communist resistance to working as a renowned architect in Paris under Le Corbusier, and becoming one of the most revolutionary composers of the 20th century, his largely self-taught musical language still sounds unlike any other voice of the post-war period.

Explore this iconic artist in depth across the public spaces of Kings Place as part of the London Sinfonietta’s innovative Turning Points series, exploring game-changing composers of the 20th century.
