Symbolic Sound and Wiener Klangwerkstatt have issued an open call for proposals for the upcoming Kyma International Sound Symposium.
The Second Kyma International Sound Symposium (KISS 2010) is scheduled for 24-26 September 2010 in the newly renovated Casino Baumgarten, a ballroom from 1890, which, due to its excellent acoustics, became one of the main recording studios in Vienna in the 1960s and 70s.
The preliminary program includes master classes presented by the creators of Kyma, papers and demos presented by Kyma practitioners, and a program of concerts and other performances featuring Kyma.
This year's theme is "Symbolic Sound":
Can non-speech sound convey meaning? Can sounds function as symbols? We will be addressing these questions using words, sound, music and image.
Deadline for submission of proposals is April 11, 2010
