Organizers have announced KISS2014: ORGANIC SOUND, the 2014 Kyma International Sound Symposium.

It is scheduled for  September 25-28, 2014, in Lübeck Germany, and will feature workshops, talks and live performances on Kyma and “Organic Sound”.

Planned activities include:

  • An examination of how to emulate the organic sound of the analog recording studio using Kyma, presented by composer/sound engineer Greg Hunter of Dub Sahara
  • A special evening of “pipe organs like you’ve never heard them before” in the experimental, virtuosic hands of master organist/composer Franz Danksagmüller and his students
  • Intensive afternoons in The Collaboratory creating and rehearsing several world premieres including a live sound track for a new film by experimental filmmaker Theo Lipfert performed by faculty and students of the Musikhochschule Lübeck processed through Kyma
  • A hands-on “plantification” workshop where you’ll learn from Rudi Giot and his graduate engineering students how to control Kyma sounds through the growth of living plants

Events will kick off on Thursday with the unveiling of a major new release of the Kyma software and will culminate on Sunday with an evening of dancing to Kyma beats at club Parkhaus.

The full program and other event details are available at the event site.

  1. Showing my ignorance here… not having heard of Kyma, I googled it and found out that “Kyma is a contemporary seafood tavern with an inventive yet approachable menu that is true to its Mediterranean origins”
