    Since Nov. 1st, HighC weekly downloads have increased tenfold. The website is now receiving thousands of download requests for HighC and I had to upgrade my ISP account to be able to accommodate the load. This must be because of this nice HighC review in Portuguese.

    A survey asking all users to provide their impression about HighC is launched. The objective is to assess the feasibility of a commercial version (20 to 60 dollars) of HighC, with more professional or more entertaining features.

    A draw among the first 200 completed answers will grant 5 free copies of HighC. The winners will be announced here and/or notified by email by mid-december.

    There will still be a free version, whose export features and playback rate will be limited, but which should stay fully functional and will still benefit from the other improvements.

    The survey is not really getting answered as fast as I would like: I still need about 100 answers before deciding where to go next. This means a new version will probably not be out before mid-february.

    On the positive side, I am testing FM and amplitude modulation in HighC: the early results are very impressive.

    On november 20th, I launched a survey to investigate future directions for HighC. It turns out that the survey has not had as many replies as I wanted (got 124 instead in 2.5 months when I wanted to have 200), but, now that version 2.0 is out, I feel like I have to call for a end of that survey and declare the winners. I said there would be 5 winners out of the first 200 respondents, so, since there are less respondents, I pulled only 4 at random, and granted one on a personal choice.

    So the winners are (randomly chosen among the registered users who responded):

    Loz, Toph, AndroidMonk and Landemore

    The choice winner is: CA.Sinclair, for his full album made with HighC.

    Those five will soon receive a personal email on how to collect their registration key. And, if you want a free "pro" license, don't forget you can get a free license by posting in the samples' section of the forum...

    HighC at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival

    Thanks to Edward Jenks, HighC was presented in the context of an exhibit on Iannis Xenakis work.

    iannis xenakis: spherical worlds launch event
    Huddersfield Art Gallery, Launch Event, 4PM
    Free event

    Exhibition runs until Sunday 27 November
    Open daily throughout the Festival;
    Monday - Friday 10am - 5pm, Saturday & Sunday
    10am - 4pm

    To accompany the focus upon Iannis Xenakis's music at hcmf// 2011 comes an exhibition telling the story of a man whose talents were too many to be confined to one sphere. Sixteen displays highlight aspects of Xenakis's life, from his turbulent youth in wartime Greece, to his achievements as an architect, composer, researcher, mathematician and thinker. At the same time, the exhibition reveals how his advances in areas such as spatialisation, stochastics and multimedia performance earned him the status of one of the 20th-century's most vital artistic figures.

    Produced by hcmf// supported by Réseau Varèse; Exhibition designed by the Centre de documentation de la musique contemporaine (Cdmc) in collaboration with Sharon Kanach, at the request of Les Amis de Xenakis. With the support of the Sacem and the Foundation Francis et Mica Salabert. Supplementary material provided by hcmf// archive.
