well you are correct about the modelling partNormally it's the modelling of a randomly occurring process using consequent random steps. So yeah I guess.

That wouldn't be stochastic though - with a stochastic process there is a probabilistic decision at each step with each outcome given a probability, and then you can go as many steps as required with the model giving you the probably of each outcome.well you are correct about the modelling part, as far as I remember it was more of an apparent randomness he was after, quite deterministic actually.
you can say the dust in the air floats around randomly but knowing enough about what affects its movement and how you should be able to reproduce the (ideally) same thing, if you can reproduce the environment and so on, whether as say cage's stuff is aleatoric, involving chance.

seems like I was wrong and you were right indeedA stochastic process is random and non-deterministic. The next state of the environment is not fully determined by the previous one.
my grandfather had lived with Xenakis for a very long time hence I happen to know his work in every detail.
... it has taken more than 20 years since his death in Paris, the place to which he fled after narrowly surviving a British tank shell in the clashes that preceded Greece’s brutal civil war, for Xenakis to be properly feted in the country of his origin.
“Elsewhere he had been celebrated far and wide, here fitting tribute had never been paid. It was a glaring omission of the Greek state towards someone of such enormous stature.”
“What we have done in collaboration with the Musée de la Musique – Philharmonie de Paris and the Centre for Contemporary Research of the Athens Conservatoire (CMRC) is finally host the first major comprehensive presentation of his work,” Gregos explained. “There had been shows and concerts here and there, but this is the first time he has been acknowledged on an institutional level in Greece.”
The re-embrace has seen record numbers flock to EMST, a concrete edifice on a busy boulevard beneath the Acropolis, with hundreds daily visiting the exhibition dedicated to Xenakis’ troubled relationship with Greece, drawn from the archives of the CMRC which the composer co-founded.
