scores- Iannis Xenakis

Great article from Art Critical:
Iannis Xenakis: Composer, Architect, Visionary at the Drawing Center by Bruce Hodges
quote ... 'If writing about music is like dancing about architecture, consider the remarkable resemblance some musical scores bear to architectural drawings. The quintessential example of this phenomenon is composer Iannis Xenakis (1922-2001), whose complex ideas sprouted from a natural love of architecture and mathematics. In a tightly constructed show now at the Drawing Center curators Sharon Kanach and Carey Lovelace have created a heady glimpse of the visual side of Xenakis, the composer who worked for Le Corbusier'.
