Pendragon Press is proud to offer this new, revised, and expanded edition of Formalized Music, Iannis Xenakis's landmark book of 1971. In addition to three totally new chapters examining recent breakthroughs in music theory, two original computer programs illustrating the actual realization of newly proposed methods of composition, and an appendix of the very latest developments of stochastic synthesis as an invitation to future exploration, Xenakis offers a very critical self-examination of his theoretical propositions and artistic output of the past thirty-five years.

This edition of Formalized Music is an essential tool for understanding the man and the thought processes of one of this century's most important and revolutionary musical figures.

Sharon Kanach:

Sharon Kanach, Vice-President of Centre Iannis Xenakis (formerly CCMIX) in France and Founder and President of the Xenakis Project of the Americas of the Brook Center at CUNY, was Xenakis's assistant for two decades.
