Who should attend
Anyone having a passion for sound design and computer music will find people and events to inspire and stimulate their creative sound work at KISS2010. If you are curious about Kyma, a beginning Kyma user or an expert who’s been using Kyma professionally for years, KISS2010 is an unparalleled opportunity to see Kyma in action, meet with the hardware/software designers, participate in serious discussions on sound design and music, be among the first to hear pre-announcements of new features, interact with other professional and avocational sound designers and musicians, hear some electronic music concerts, attend a 5-hour Kyma masterclass, and still make a little time for yourself to explore some of the musical sites in Vienna.
Lively discussions, electronic/computer music performances, demos, workshops, and paper sessions will be held in the newly renovated Casino Baumgarten, a spectacular 19th century ballroom, and the Rhiz Bar Modern, a showcase for experimental media located beneath the famous City Railway of Vienna.
