Vient de paraître : From Xenakis’s UPIC to Graphic Notation Today, sous la dir. de Peter Weibel, Ludger Brümmer et Sharon Kanach, Berlin, Hatje Cantz Verlag GmbH, 669 p.
« In the late 70s, an interdisciplinary team led by the composer Iannis Xenakis developed the compositional tool UPIC out of an effort to transform drawings into synthesized sound.
Together with the Centre Iannis Xenakis, the ZKM is now addressing for the first time the genesis of this unique computational instrument and traces its technical, social, institutional, and educational significance up to the current practice of contemporary composers who work with the idea of UPIC in current computer programs. »
