Diamorphoses by Iannis Xenakis


In Licata, Thomas (ed.) Electroacoustic Music: Analytical Perspectives. Westport, Connecticut: Greenwood: 41-57.

In this chapter, the author presents a detailed structural, poietic (production-based) analysis of Iannis Xenakis’ first electronic work Diamorphoses (1957). He discusses the ways in which one must consider selecting the most appropriate means for analysing a work’s sonic events, particularly for those works without a score. He uses sonograms to illustrate and contextualise his analysis.
