Sound and music are the original augmented reality technology. Throughout human history, sound and music have played an intrinsic role in magic, ritual, ceremony, and celebration, transforming the mundane into the sublime, marking everyday events as memorable milestones, and enhancing the flow of experience. Acoustic archeologists speculate that certain acoustic properties of ancient monuments were intentionally designed to transform the human voice into something supernatural and that, throughout history, centers of power have been constructed as polished stone surfaces enclosing vast spaces in order to augment the sounds created within them — creating mysterious, impressive, and transformative experiences.

The Norwegian Academy of Music, the University of Oslo Department of Musicology, NOTAM and Symbolic Sound invite you to join us as we explore the theme of Augmenting Reality through talks, live performances, hands-on workshops, and lively discussions at the Kyma International Sound Symposium, KISS 2017 in Oslo Norway 12-15 October 2017.

Program Overview

The annual Kyma International Sound Symposium includes papers, workshops, demos, and live performances presented by Kyma practitioners along with master classes presented by the creators of Kyma, all tied together by a unifying theme. You are invited to learn, to share, to meet, and to enjoy!

Kyma experts from Austria, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and the USA will be in Oslo to share their expertise in workshops, demonstrations, talks, and live performances.
