IANNIS XENAKIS > 100th anniversary box sets


Karlrecords is excited to announce a 5 LP / 5 CD box set celebrating the 100th anniversary of IANNIS XENAKIS (on May 29th, 2022), one of the most influential 20th century avantgarde composers.

As with „La Légende d’Eer“ and „Persepolis“ before, the tracks have been newly mixed by longtime zeitkratzer sound engineer MARTIN WURMNEST and mastered by RASHAD
BECKER and now reveal their full sonic range and dynamics.
„This is the definitive Persepolis“ stated The Wire (May 2018, issue 411) and this will be true for the new sets as well.
Scheduled for release as part of the Perihel series curated by REINHOLD FRIEDL in January 2022 and flanked by several performances across Europe in the Xenakis jubilee year (details tba), while preorder starts early December.
Formats:

5x 180gram LP incl 4c insert and download code + booklet

5x Digipack CD + booklet
