The year 2022 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of the Greek-born pioneer composer and thinker Iannis Xenakis, and is accompanied worldwide by events dedicated to his memory and work.

To honour this Greek-born musician, a marathon concert takes place at Athens Conservatory, on Saturday 17 December, presenting works inspired by his musical work and his reflections on science and technology and the role of muscles in society and the arts.  

This event, which takes place at the Athens Conservatory from 7 pm until 3:30 am the following day, features musicians and artists from ten different countries (Greece, Italy, Germany, Turkey, Japan, Mexico, England, Ireland, Germany, Turkey, United States). The artists perform the works remotely from their countries with simultaneous participation of other artists on site and elsewhere, connected via internet.  This concert is a tribute to the research vision of Iannis Xenakis and his efforts to push the boundaries of technology and artistic creation. It highlights the potential of technology to support international collaboration in artistic creation, to create works that are performed live in multiple venues simultaneously regardless of distance, using new experimental media that allow for direct communication and exchange of musical data. In addition, with some of the central works presented, the concert is a tribute to Xenakis' vision of international collaboration among young people to overcome the "biological struggle between generations unfurling all over the planet," as he writes about his monumental composition "Kraanerg", choreographed by Roland Petit.
