Format: Paperback
It is Unique theory book for music based on mathematics as I know. Xenakis's musical world is based on modern mathematics. He use statistics, stochastic process, game theory, group theory, etc. in order to formalize macro level musical structure. This book shows how mathematics can be applied to music. He insists that the criterion for aesthetics of music be "intelligence", not beauty. I think that It is historical publication in music theory area.
