music workshops: "let's draw music!"
education, training & workshops

How can we draw music? With the help of Rodolphe Bourotte, we will look for the answer through the UPISketch innovative application.


The workshop, held for the first time in Cyprus, will offer children aged 6 to 12 a unique opportunity to get a firsthand look at a new music composition application for mobile devices, titled UPISketch, that does not require training! The workshop will be supplemented by the  “Iannis Xenakis’s UPIC” exhibition as a way of introducing participants to the creative relationship between art and music.  

Tablets will be given to participants during the workshop, though they can bring their own devices in case they wish to install the application. The exhibition will remain open for the public until 7:00 pm, with free admission

 You can find some sample recordings here.
