Giorgio Magnanensi

Hibiki-Hana-Ma; Works by Sara Gold and Jacob Audrey Taves

Giorgio Magnanensi will diffuse Xenakis’ Hibiki-Hana-Ma for 8-channel tape, alongside pieces by festival artists Sara Gold and Jacob Audrey Taves.

Hibiki-Hana-Ma was composed for the 1970 Osaka World’s Fair, and was created with the UPIC system, a graphical input device that Xenakis invented, using recordings of an orchestra, a biwa, and a snare drum.
