A special issue of IANNIS XENAKIS' Persepolis originally commissioned by the former Shah of Iran in 1971 for the third annual Shiraz arts festival which coincided with the country's 2,500th anniversary of Iran's founding by Cyrus the Great. A fifty-six-minute, eight-track tape piece of musique concrète - a noisy, apocalyptic-sounding composition distinguished by rising waves of intensity. This edition includes a special bonus CD featuring Persepolis remix interpretations by Japan's OTOMO YOSHIHIDE, RYOJI IKEDA, and CONTSTRUCTION KITS; Spain's FRANCISCO LOPEZ; Poland's ZBIGNIEW KARKOWSKI; Germany's ULF LANGHEINRICH; and America's ANTIMATTER and LAMINAR.
