Polytope XIa

An audiovisual exploration of Speicher XIa inspired by Iannis Xenakis

On the occasion of the 100th birthday of the composer, architect and multimedia artist Iannis Xenakis (1922–2001) a large sound and light production will be presented in the new Speicher XI A. Students of both departments of the University of the Arts Bremen have studied his Polytope de Cluny (1972), an early milestone of immersive digital media art. They will now interpret the original audio tracks on a 3D loudspeaker setup and juxtapose them with a complex light installation, developed specifically for Speicher XI A. Furthermore, new spatial audio compositions reacting to Xenakis’ ideas will be presented.

At this pre-opening of the newly built Speicher XI A visitors are invited to walk around freely and to participate in the sonic and visual exploration of the architecture.
