    Varese, Xenakis, and Le Corbusier

    1958, 8:27

    Originally performed during the universal exhibition of Bruxelles in 1958. A mix of colors, lights, sounds, voices, images and electroacoustic music. As Le Corbusier said himself : “Le Poème électronique se propose de montrer, au sein d'un tumulte angoissant, notre civilisation partie à la conquête des temps modernes.” (“Le poeme electronique proposes to show,within a distressing tumult, our civilization on her way to conquest modern times.”)
