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 and performers from Austria, Belgium, China, Colombia, Germany, Ecuador, Netherlands, South Korea, UK, and the USA will be in Lübeck to share their expertise in workshops, demonstrations, talks, and live performances.
