I will not make a pavilion for you, but an Electronic Poem and a vessel containing the poem; light, colour, image, rhythm and sound joined together in an organic synthesis. – Le Corbusier
A collaborative work bringing together the music of Edgard Varèse and architecture of Iannis Xénakis, under the management of Le Corbusier, Poéme Électronique was created for the Philips Pavilion at the Brussels World Fair 1958, constituting a spectacular multi-channel, multi-media production. While its original site-specific format is now lost to history, the work is considered a seminal piece of early electronic music, using the most advanced technologies available at its time. This screening comprises of a combined version of the original sound and visuals.
