    Been talking Steve McQueen this week with Mikel Ellcessor. How could I resist this reblog?

    It’s a sign that you’re probably in the right place when you skip over the small talk and get right to full bore geekery in the first two weeks on the job.

    Philips Pavilion / Expo 1958 / Brussels
    LC _ Iannis Xenakis

    Commissioned by Philips, the pavilion was designed to house a multimedia spectacle that celebrated postwar technological progress.
    The pavilion is a cluster of nine hyperbolic paraboloid in which music, Edgar Varèse’s Poème électronique, was spatialized by sound projectionists using telephone dials. The speakers were set into the walls, which were coated in asbestos, creating a textured look to the walls. Varèse drew up a detailed spatialization scheme for the entire piece which made great use of the physical layout of the pavilion, especially the height of it.
