This virtual birthday present was created by the Centre Iannis Xenakis to celebrate the (supposed) 100th birthday of the composer. It is a short documentary presenting the exhibition which was organized at the Student Center of the University of Rouen Normandy (our headquarters) by a Master’s seminar in Musicology-Research headed by Cyrille Delhaye, responsible for our archives. It is based on the unique bequest made to the CIX by Bruno Rastoin (1954-2020), our former Treasurer, of some 300 photographs he took around the Diatope, Xenakis’s penultimate polytope, for the inauguration of the Centere Georges-Pompidou (Beaubourg) in 1978.

The Centre Iannis Xenakis (CIX) is the continuation of Les Ateliers UPIC, the association founded in 1985 by Iannis Xenakis and Maurice Fleuret, (renamed the Centre de creation musicale Iannis Xenakis (CCMIX) in 2000), to promote the machine for composing music by drawing, developed by Iannis Xenakis in 1977, called the UPIC. Since December 2010, the renamed Centre Iannis Xenakis (CIX) is housed at the University of Rouen (France), under the auspices of the GRHis research lab (Groupe de Recherche d’Histoire), with its important archives being conserved in the University’s main library and its offices in the University’s Student Center.
