Anestis Logothetis is one of the leading pioneers of 20th century composition and his graphic notation system, developed around 1958, is a milestone in the evolution of musical notation.
The Onassis Cultural Centre, in collaboration with Music Department, University of Athens and the Institute for Research on Music & Acoustics (IEMA) are organizing a tribute to the composer Anestis Logothetis.

Anestis Logothetis is one of the leading pioneers of 20th century composition. His graphic notation system, developed around 1958, is a milestone in the evolution of musical notation. Logothetis employs this system to different ways of imprinting the contemporary sound on the score in order to express the sense of space in musical notation and redefine the roles of the composer, the performer and the audience, during the composition and performance of a piece.

Logothetis' graphic scores reveal his special aesthetic. His graphic notation system "requires" and ensures the polymorphism of his music. His ideology and way of thinking animates the improvisation and the freedom of the musician during the performance.
 
The tribute to Anestis Logothetis will include: You can watch the conference and the concerts live through Internet. Live streaming is free, available via http://live.grnet.gr/sgt
