Symbolic Sound, in partnership with De Montfort University’s Faculty of Art, Design and Humanities hosted the eighth annual Kyma International Sound Symposium. The theme was “Emergence”. We all lectured, performed and listened to talks about the past and current theories and manifestations of emergence. Subjects ranged from swarming to strange attractors and many in between. Enough information and inspiration to chew on for the coming year.
Those who gathered for this symposium are a group of devoted users of the Kyma System that was developed by Carla Scaletti and Kurt Hebel. It was a remarkable experience to spend four days with the creators of the instrument I use to make my art. Personal relationships with the makers of my flutes and the makers of the Kyma System: How wonderful is that?
