The moving images of four film projectors have been dispersed in real space by means of mirrors for creation of the virtual space. The 400 loudspeakers created the acoustical spatial effect and distributed along walls of pavilion. The music accompaniment broadcasted through them. The loudspeakers formed sound level in the “mountains” of noise and provided their acceleration or deceleration, submitting to the general rhythm. Le Corbusier imagined that main message of the “Poeme electronique” influenced the person automaticallythrough hearing and sight the moment He entered the pavilion, narrating about the most tragical and the most significant events of civilization origin from the moment. Architectural, light, projecting and sound spaces in this case have been closely interconnected, synthesized, subordinated to the basic scenario of show. Corbusier wrote about it so: “the synthetical event has happened.

A new tool has opened a door to imagination electronics taken from the unlimited resources of physics, gives to the person the absolutely boundless possibilities, amazing sources of influence by means of light. Color, a rhythm, a sound and image have united; they can be reproduced in any place”9 in the course of creation ‘Philips’ pavilion and”Poeme electronique”, in a head of Xenakis an image of the work has ripened for future. He named it a polytope: the architecturally-spatial, colored-light, musical-noise, verbally-literary performance. The global artistic conception by Iannis Xenakis what embodied in his five polytopes best the composer of music understanding of all, it reflected as “a work in space” (he has been obliged by this idea to Le Corbusier). Aspiring to the maximum influence on people of his total performances, Xenakis addressed to the multimedia because it united all accessible means of expression. The spatial embodiment of compositions is fundamental principle for Xenakis and it is realized in his works through idea of the spatial-zonal plurality proving at all dramaturgic levels.Thanks to it the structure of a multimedia genre what created by application of several spaces: of light-projecting, architectural and musical spaces.

He had a firm view of what should be carried out so that women could have more freedom, including the protection of widows and minor wives and she also objected to the practice of sati. Acuciada by economic needs his family had to leave their home in Mangalore, a journey made pilgrimage shrines, temples and sacred rivers. It was here where Pandita took contact with the suffering of the ninas-viudas, unable to marry again, with women alive should be sacrificed on the pyre beside her dead husbands and they were drawn into prostitution. He realized that women in India, victim of a degrading religious and cultural system, was classified at the same level as animals. In fact, in some Hindu religious texts are treated women as worse than demons and whose only God is her husband, who can do with it what he pleases. On that journey of pilgrimage, where he saw die to his parents and his older sister of hunger, religious beliefs Pandita had received from his father collapsed. He had travelled along the dusty roads of the India in search of peace and now her daughter was looking for another way that satisfied his soul. It is said that after traveling 6,000 Km wandering around the nation, came in 1878 with his brother to Calcutta, where he gave lectures and won the hearts of Bengali Brahmins.

His knowledge of Sanskrit impressed them so much that, after a review by a group of scholars (pandits), was awarded the title of Pandita, meaning learned, being the first woman reaching such title in the India. After the death of his brother, Pandita, married a friend of this, the graduate and lawyer Bepin Bihari Medhavi, who was from a caste lower than the Pandita. This marriage was the birth of a daughter who put Manoramabai; Unfortunately to shortly after birth the girl, died her husband as a consequence the cholera.This big loss, later wrote in his memoirs, came to me more to God.
