Show Summary Details


This chapter analyses the work of composer Anestis Logothetis. It explores Logothetis's compositional technique and experimental form of musical notation as an aesthetic and implicitly ethico-political engagement, and offers a precise mapping of a musical machine, drawing not only on Gilles Deleuze's work but also on that of Gilbert Simondon. The chapter argues that artistic compositions such as Logothetis's are cybernetic and improvisational scores for collective experimentation.

Keywords: Anestis Logothetis; compositional technique; musical notation; ethico-political engagement; musical machine; Gilles Deleuze; Gilbert Simondon; improvisational scores; collective experimentation
