Beautiful Noise Music

Xenakis invented a machine, the UPIC,  that can convert his images into sound using some really complicated mathematics. The piece presents a surprising variety of sounds that all seem to exist organically in the same sound world. Like my other post, I liked this piece in particular because it involved “drawing” sound and having a computer (the noise machine) mediate that transition; although, I would definitely be more inclined to listen to music created by this machine than the other one.
