Edgard Varèse (1883-1965)
Poème électronique, Brüssel 1958
It is only some decades that space has become an aspect of music lending itself to intensive and not only casual exploration by the artists. One of the first sound spaces in the rather young history of plastic work with sound is Edgard Varèse's Poème électronique, in which the usually divided arts of music and architecture meet and form an outstanding work.
Upon the invitation of the Philips Company, who wanted to make themselves known at the World Fair in Brussels in 1958, Le Corbusier suggested the project of a pavilion. Iannis Xenakis designing the architecture and Edgard Varèse rendering the pavilion musically.
