    Les Ateliers Volants is a great initiative from my friend PYR to teach music and music creation using computers. Modern software offers tremendous capabilities to dig deeper into what the sound is made of, assemble it, observe it, tweak it, visualize it. The students are not limited by their instrumental and score reading abilities.

    Quite naturally, HighC is a tool of choice within les "atelier volant"'s repertoire. It provides faithful representations of complex audio landscapes, that are easy to grasp and manipulate. Many exercises have been designed using HighC as a support.

    Les ateliers volants offer students of all ages the ability to conceptualize and visualize better the audio and perceptual phenomena that form the basis of music. As a result, students stand on a firmer ground to deepen and structure their hearing, master music theory and the principles of audio synthesis.

    I am open to other music pedagogy initiatives using HighC. Drop me a note if you teach music and are interested in using HighC in your classroom. I am also preparing a course outline with many lively exercises which I can make available to anyone interested.

    Brian O'Reilly uses HighC at Master Classes at the School of Contemporary Music at LaSalle College of the Arts, Singapore.

    "Not only is HighC a great way to teach the fundamentals of synthesis techniques, now rather than just lecturing about the theory behind the UPIC, with HighC students get a hands on experience using the interface which remains true in spirit to the UPIC/UPIX, an invaluable pedagogical tool on many levels!"

    Brian O'Reilly is the creator of various works for moving images, live cinema, electronic/noise music & is a contrabassist, focusing on the integration of extended playing techniques with electronics treatments.

    He has worked extensively with Xenakis' electronic music system utilizing graphic sound synthesis the UPIC, And for a time was Musical Assistant at Les Ateliers UPIC (now CCMIX).

    He has worked with Eliane Radigue, Luc Ferrari, Matmos, Maryanne Amacher, Fe-Mail, Steina and Woody Vasulka, and regularly performs & collaborates on projects with Garth Knox, Stefanie L. Ku, Zbigniew Karkowski, Iron Egg & Curtis Roads.

    Currently he is a Lecturer at the School of Contemporary Music at LaSalle College of the Arts, Singapore.
