Electroacoustic Works celebrates the 100th anniversary of Iannis Xanakis (on May 29th, 2022), one of the most influential 20th century avantgarde composers. For the first time, the complete electroacoustic works of Xenakis are now available on record! All tracks have been newly mixed by longtime zeitkratzer sound engineer Martin Wurmnest and mastered by Rashad Becker and finally reveal their full sonic range and dynamics. Booklet with English / German liner notes by R. Friedl (zeitkratzer) and rare photos from the Xenakis archive.

For the first time, the complete electroacoustic works of Xenakis are now available on record – the truly overdue testimony and legacy of a restless investigator and explorer of sound. Years of source studies and comparative research by zeitkratzer director R. Friedl, in collaboration with sound engineer M. Wurmnest, made these critically reflected stereo mixes possible, which were appropriately mastered by Rashad Becker and which, in addition to the aspect of fidelity to the source, put the listener in the center. Xenakis' adventurous music can now finally be enjoyed in its full sonic range and dynamic.
