Iannis Xenakis analyses the novelty of the Philips Pavilion at the Brussels Exhibition in 1958. The first part explains the concept of visual gesture and the second part, the concept of sound gesture. Visual gesture relates to luminous projection on non-plane-based architecture. The sound gesture is based on sounds moving along several loudspeakers within a particular architecture.
