Russell Haswell and Florian Hecker: UPIC Diffusion Session #12
UPIC Diffusion Session #12, a multi-channel sound performance, utilizes material generated at the Centre for Composition of Music Iannis Xenakis in Paris, using the UPIC system of sound synthesis developed by Xenakis. UPIC is made of a drawing tablet in the size of a large sheet of paper, and allows the user to “draw” a sound composition: the lines drawn with an electronic pen are directly translated into sound. Haswell and Hecker create a diffusion of a composition arranged for the specific situation in the courtyard of the Renaissance Fortress, and construct an immaterial space, superimposed to the existing architecture.

Transfers from Dubrovnik to Lopud and back will be provided. For more details please contact More info on

Under the official patronage of the Minister of Culture of Republic of Croatia and City of Dubrovnik, with kind support by Lopud town council.
