DELIAN ACADEMY FOR NEW MUSIC
International Academy for Composers & Sound Artists
7 - 16 June 2019
The Delian Academy for New Music is an international summer academy for composers and sound artists located on the island of Mykonos, Greece.
Curated under the auspices of Georges Aperghis and Grypario Cultural Center, the Academy derives its name from the nearby island of Delos, the birthplace of god Apollo, and a UNESCO world heritage site.
Unlike top-down organization programs, our Academy is a participant-driven meeting where attendees co-decide and create the agenda for a series of symposia, workshops, and concerts with the guidance of faculty and staff.
The 2019 edition will focus on acoustic composition only. The program will take place from 7 June to 16 June 2019 in Grypario Cultural Center in Mykonos, Greece. Participating composers will have the chance to take part in masterclasses, presentations, workshops and have their music performed by our ensembles in residence. The main language of the Academy will be English. Additional languages may be used in private masterclasses.
