    Thanks for this post. Xenakis scores share a space with Ruth Asawa and Buckminster Fuller at BAMPFA’s Architecture of Life show. His composition Concret Ph, played in the gallery, is composed entirely of 1 second fragments of the sound of charcoal burning, originally played on 425 speakers in the Phillips Pavilion which Xenakis also designed at the Brussels World Fair of 1958.
