UPIC stands for Unité Polyagogique Informatique du CEMAMu. Despite the seeming technicality of this name, this apparatus is magic. Here, it is about nothing less than the translation of visuality, in the form of drawing, into musical compositions. The digital miracle machine was invented in the late 1970s by the composer Iannis Xenakis. Its value as a musical instrument is exceeded by its historical signifi cance, for it is the origin of a system of graphic notation that can hardly be separated from contemporary music today. This publication pursues his trailblazing story.
