The First International Kyma Symposium is scheduled for 8-10 October 2009 in the vibrant Poble Nou neighborhood of Barcelona during the annual LEM festival. The preliminary program includes master classes presented by the creators of Kyma, papers and demos presented by Kyma practitioners, and a program of concerts, live improvised silent film scores.
Symbolic Sound and Station 55 invite you to share your ideas, experiences and art with fellow practitioners at the First Kyma Symposium by attending the symposium and interacting with your fellow Kyma practitioners!
We'll be live microblogging from Barcelona (via Twitter) and we'll write a daily report here on Unidentified Sound Object so that even those who cannot attend can still benefit from the symposium. Photos of the event will be available via Flickr.
If you cannot attend...
Not everyone can make it to Barcelona, but your Kyma Sounds can! Cristian Vogel invites you to submit AIFF or WAV files created exclusively with Kyma for an automated "DJ Pacarana" set which will be providing background ambience for the 'Meet and Greet' reception on Thursday evening. Textures, sound design sketches, loops, and ambiences ranging in duration from 1 second to 5 minutes can be submitted in 16 bit, 44.1K WAV or AIFF and will be combined, spatialized, and layered according to a random number generator seeded with "0.8102009". In the spirit of 'Meet and Greet', please include your name and your city as part of the sound (spoken, sung, or otherwise encrypted) so we can meet and greet you virtually! Please send your files to his drop box.
