For info on the composition and the process behind you can read Xenakis book Formalized Music but in short the composer recorded sounds of burning wood etc then used a process of granular synthesis to create this sounds I hope it helps a bit. cheers!!!!

The piece is dated 1958. The granular synthesis techniques (together with all other digital synthesis techniques) is still so far from being created (first digital implementation will be made from Berry Truax and Curtis Roads around 70s). Xenakis was one of the first composer to think about sounds as big assemblages of small sound-units, but his pieces (especially this one) were not made with the use of granular synthesis.
