    As said on the frontpage, the main inspiration behind HighC is Iannis Xenakis' UPIC. Over the past few weeks, I have learnt a good deal about previous works in the domain:

    According to "Interfaces Homme-Machine et Creation Musicale" (Hermes, Paris, 1998), Max Mathews and Rosler developed a "Graphic System" in 1966, which probably inspired Iannis Xenakis.

    The russian ANS synthesizer was designed in the late 30's, and finally built and operational as early as 1964. It is entirely analogic, which is the main difference with UPIC. However, from reading its description, it is clearly a predecessor in intent to the UPIC.

    It was used (among others) by Alfred Schnittke.
