Video: Xenakis, with audience

Would you buy a ticket to this? The piece is “Terretektorh” for 88 musicians (1966) by the Greek avant-garde composer Iannis Xenakis (1922-2001). The orchestra is supposed to “scatter” itself among the public during a performance, as you see is being done here. The music is fascinating to me and even a bit playful at times.
