Immersion in the singular universe of Iannis Xenakis

Your tickets for the new exhibition at the Philharmonie de Paris


The composer would have turned 100 this year! The "Xenakis Revolutions" exhibition celebrates his many facets and surprising work with a visual and aural experience that is well worth the visit.

To know

Iannis Xenakis is one of the most prolific artists of the second half of the 20th century. At the same time a composer, an architect who collaborated with Le Corbusier, and a mathematics and computer science enthusiast, he is a pioneer in electroacoustic music, computer music and immersive electronic concerts. His work is the reflection of permanent disciplinary crossings. 

The exhibition plunges you into the heart of his studio and offers an immersive experience in the image of his total art shows. It brings together nearly 20 musical and architectural opuses, and 220 original archival documents from his private collection: photographs, models, scores. The tour, both thematic and chronological, invites visitors to explore his unique world, his personal history, as well as his thoughts and his work.
